I am Dominque Brodie, an Intern in the Office of the General Counsel at the National Urban League.
I am 19, a rising senior, and student leader at UNC Chapel Hill. I’m studying Psychology with minors in English and African American Studies. Originally from the small town of Oxford, NC, I’m passionate about increasing equity and access to education and justice for marginalized communities, particularly those that are poor and Black. I enjoy writing, organizing, and remaining involved with extracurricular organizations like UNC’s Black Student Movement (BSM). During my sophomore and junior years, I served as the Editor in Chief of Black Ink Magazine, a subgroup of BSM and the only on-campus publication created by and for Black students at UNC. In the upcoming fall, I will serve as co-chair of BSM’s Political Action Committee.
I believe in the power of Black communities to tell our own stories, determine our own identities, and continuously fight for our own civil and human rights. In my free time I enjoy reading, writing, listening to music, and eating.
In my future, I intend to work either in education or in a non-profit directly after graduation to gain experience before attending Law School and becoming a civil rights attorney.
