LaTesha Harris

LaTesha Harris

LaTesha Harris is NPR Music's editorial assistant. A relentless jack-of-all-trades, she takes turns writing, editing and producing music coverage. Invested in the culture behind pop, hip-hop and R&B, her work highlights the intersection between identity and history. Once in a blue moon, Harris moonlights as a talking head with no filter.

Born and raised in Central Texas, Harris began her career in Chicago. In 2020, she graduated from Northwestern University with a bachelor's degree in journalism and creative writing alongside a master's degree in social justice and investigative reporting. When she's not in the newsroom, Harris is staring at bodies of water, studying abolition and trying to discover something new.
