Regina Duggins was born in Brooklyn, New York.  She relocated to Charleston, South Carolina, in 2010 as part of a pact to reconnect to her family’s roots.  Poet, author, and Charleston Black Pride founder, being a voice for the voiceless has been a lifelong mission for Duggins. She began her love of writing poetry in the 7th grade when her English teacher introduced her to poetry writing.  She is a reading interventionist for the Charleston County School District and has also worked with inner-city youth in the Charleston area as an after-school assistant coordinator.

She received her doctorate at Grand Canyon University in organizational leadership with an emphasis on K-12.  She is also the founder of Black Magic Girls Mentoring Program, a parent advocate for Charleston Rise, and a self-published author of two poetry books.  Her first book of poetry, Black Magic, was written in 2017.  Duggins’ second book of poetry, Black Coffee: No Sugar, No Cream, addresses violence as well as women empowerment, living in marginalized communities, the need for inclusion and diversity, police brutality in Black communities, feminist issues, and the importance of voting.
