About Jamilah Asali-Lemieux:

A renowned cultural critic and writer with a focus on issues of race, gender and sexuality, Jamilah Lemieux is a leading millennial feminist thinker, influencer and game-changing media maverick. Lemieux formerly served as the Vice President of News and Men’s Programming for iOne Digital, where she helped spearhead the creation of CASSIUS, a progressive digital lifestyle platform and as the Senior Editor for EBONY magazine, where she played a key role in launching the publication’s website in 2012 and modernizing the brand voice and identity.

She recently departed the 9-to-5 world to strike out on her own and launched The Lemieux Group, a consulting firm that provides communications, public relations, and crisis management services. In this capacity, she served as the Communications and Engagement Strategist to Cynthia Nixon’s campaign for governor of New York and is currently working as a Communications Strategist for Girls for Gender Equity, a leading grassroots organizing, advocacy, policy and service delivery organization centering youth of color within the racial and gender justice movement of the 21st century.

Lemieux’s written work has been featured via a host of print and digital platforms, including Essence, Mic, The Guardian, Colorlines, The Washington Post, The Columbia Journalism Review, The Nation and The New York Times. She penned the forward for the 2015 anniversary of Michele Wallace's Black Macho and the Myth of the Superwoman and the 2017 re-release of Ann Petry’s Miss Muriel and Other Stories. She has appeared as a commentator on various news programs for CNN, ABC, CBS, BET, Buzzfeed, MTV2, and MSNBC, as well as Comedy Central's The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore and The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Vice’s Desus and Mero, TMZ and The Breakfast Club, the popular nationally syndicated morning radio show.

In 2018, after years of calling for accountability for the famed R&B singer known for his mistreatment of underage girls and women, she was prominently featured in Lifetime’s critically acclaimed docuseries, Surviving R. Kelly Lemieux's previous public speaking appearances include panels, keynotes and hosting duties at Columbia University, Vassar College, Howard University, SXSW, Georgetown, NYU, the Brooklyn Museum, Penn State, Morehouse College, Emory, the Claremont Colleges, the University of Iowa, Washington University in St. Louis and Harvard University.

She has been featured on The Root 100 list of the nation's most influential African Americans, and has been honored by Planned Parenthood, the New York City Council, the New York State Senate, Black Women's Blueprint, Walker’s Legacy and the Delta Rho Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.

A social media influencer since before the term had been coined, Lemieux is among “Black Twitter’s” most prominent voices, engaging an audience of over 187k followers with her musings on politics, culture, and motherhood on a daily basis.
