6-5-1: Jamilah Lemieux

By 651 ARTS on November 13, 2014

In an effort to help our audience know more about the artists 651 ARTS presents, we have developed the 6-5-1 Interview—six questions, five minutes, one artist. This interview spotlights Triple Consciousness discussant and Senior Digital Editor at EBONY, Jamilah Lemieux.

  1. What’s your morning routine?
    • Wake up, spend an hour working on content for EBONY.com and answering emails, while also cooking breakfast for my daughter, run out the house for work looking crazy.


  2. What’s your fondest memory of being a black girl?
    • Laughter!


  3. Double Dutch or Jacks and why?
    • Jacks, because I never learned how to jump double dutch and I can’t turn because I’m “double handed!”


  4. If you could visit any place in the world where would it be and why?
    • I would like to go to the exact country in Africa where my ancestors are from and see where they lived before coming here. I’d love to know my motherland as more than a concept.


  5. What’s going to be fly, fresh, and fun about being a black woman in 50 years?
    • Everything, because we will run the world by then.


  6. How do you love?
    • Truly, madly, deeply.

651 ARTS would like to thank Jamilah Lemieux for answering our six questions that give a better glimpse of the artists we present. Stay tuned for more artist interviews.
