Regina Freer’s research and teaching interests include race and politics, demographic change, urban politics, and the intersection of all three in Los Angeles.

Her current research project examines the material consequences and contradictions in how policy-makers and community members respond to Black population decline accompanied by spatial and cultural erasure in several U.S. cities. She is also working on a political biography of Charlotta Bass, an L.A.-based African American newspaper editor and activist who ran for vice president of the United States in 1952.

Freer currently serves as chair of the board of the Los Angeles Black Worker Center. Previously she was a board member of the Center for Juvenile Law and Policy at Loyola Law School, the Southern California Library for Social Studies and Research, and the Liberty Hill Community Funding Board.
