Part of Speech- Noun


Definition:  the act or process of reclaiming

Found in spoken word poem Hair by Elizabeth Acevedo

The definition of the word reclamation, helped me get a clearer more understanding of that specific sentence in the poem.  Acevedo’s message is don’t try to fix something that isn’t broken. She speaking to everyone whether u are Latina, black or what ever race, don’t ever listen to what someone else has to say and that you don’t have to change anything about yourself or appearance.
