Jamilah Lemieux Biography

A renowned cultural critic and writer with a focus on issues of race, gender, and sexuality, Jamilah Lemieux is a leading millennial feminist thinker, social influencer, and game-changing media maverick.

Lemieux’s written work has been featured via a host of print and digital platforms, including the LA Times, the Nation, Essence, Playboy, the Cut, the Guardian, Colorlines, the Washington Post, Wired, Self, Inverse, Refinery 29, the Columbia Journalism Review, the Nation and the New York Times. She penned the foreword 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." Lemieux's first book, "She Bad: Tales of Love, Hate, and Baby Motherhood" will be released in 2024.

Currently, she pens a weekly advice column for Slate's "Care and Feeding" parenting section and is a co-host for the publication's "Mom and Dad Are Fighting" podcast. 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. 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" and "Surviving R. Kelly 2: The Reckoning." She also appeared in A&E's "Secrets of Playboy."

Lemieux 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. Prior to that, she worked 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.

Lemieux 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.

Her work has included communications, public relations, and crisis management services for organizations and high-profile individuals. In this capacity, she served as the Communications and Engagement Strategist for Cynthia Nixon’s campaign for governor of New York and as a Communications Strategist for Girls for Gender Equity, a leading grassroots organizing, advocacy, policy, and service delivery organization dedicated to centering youth of color within the racial and gender justice movement of the 21st century. She resides in Los Angeles.

As a public speaker, Lemieux has addressed countless audiences at schools, conferences, and cultural events, including the official commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the death of Malcolm X. Her 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.

Lemieux is available in partnership with Collective Speakers.
