Event Details

Remove The Frame flyer

Michelle O Brunch, a leadership development platform for ambitious women, and Long Island University’s Black Student Union presents Seize The Narrative I: Remove the Frame.  The event, open to college students and the general public, will prompt attendees to evaluate their personal experiences and aspirations via a historical, cultural and narrative lens, discover new ideas and possibilities for the future, and connect with brilliant women.  The event features a panel discussion, Remove the Frame, and a mentor session, Discover Your Story.

Remove The Frame Panel will explore how a media landscape saturated with stereotypical images and incomplete narratives plus a tough economy can limit what young people believe they can achieve.  You will hear from women, representing a diversity of professional and cultural experience, that have challenged the frames to chart bold and authentic journeys.  

Panelists Include:

Esther Armah, Radio Host, Wake Up Call at WBAI 99.5 FM

Nana Brew-Hammond, Style/Culture Writer, Author of Powder Necklace

Damali Elliott, Founder, Petals-N-Belles

Jamilah Lemieux, Content Editor,

A recurring challenge expressed by young women and men as they consider the road after college is the shortage of caring adult mentors. Immediately following the Panel,  all attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a facilitated flash mentor session: Discover Your Story.  In small groups, attendees will brainstorm their personal narratives and receive constructive guidance and tips on cultivating their strengths. The sessions will be lead by an inspirational mentor and assisted by a BSU member. 

Mentors Include:

Asiana Blount, Manager, Macy's Special Events

Erica Bohler, Engineer, Bohler Engineering

Raven Carter, Producer, Moguldum Media Group

Sylvia A. Harvey (SAH), Journalist
