Podcast Feature | Who Raised You? Ep. 03: “Don’t Touch My Hair”

“We lessen the distractions so that we can stay focused on freedom and stay focused on justice, and I think that’s part of what it is as it relates to hair and justice right now.” –De Andrea Nichols


Who Raised You? Podcast is a kitchen table conversation between Karen (Jia Lian) Yang and Treasure Shields Redmond that explores how culture, family, and intersecting identities pave the way toward liberation.

In this episode, they talked with me about hair, why I did the “big chop” and embraced my hair as a crown, and how my appearance intersects with professionalism and activism.
