About Dominique Jacqueline Mann
Dominique is a writer and multifaceted storyteller.
She was formerly a media affairs manager and writer for the Obama White House. Prior to the White House, Dominique worked on former President Obama's re-election campaign at his Chicago headquarters. She has also been a producer, writer, and reporter at NBCUniversal (30 Rockefeller Center), CBS, and BET—with published works on NBC's platforms. As a reporter at NBC, Dominique interviewed Martin Luther King Jr.'s daughter (Bernice King), Jesse Jackson, the lawyer who argued Loving v. Virginia (Bernard Cohen), and many other advocates, writers, and people with untold, powerful stories. Dominique has been featured in Essence magazine and The Boston Globe, among other outlets—and contributed writing to publications such as Glamour magazine. Dominique has pursued this storytelling alongside her communications experiences in tech and executive training she has received as a Black founder.
Dominique's current storytelling work includes immersive audio, screenwriting, and various literary projects. She has coalesced this work into her production company, As Any Mann Productions, which focuses on systemic change storytelling and empowering people of color. Dominique brings diverse experience to storytelling—from grassroots organizing, to a nature equity initiative she founded, to photography she learned on a trip to Alaska's wilderness and the Amazon rainforest, to acting that led to her appearance in an independent film. For most of her life, Dominique has also engaged in community work in multiple ways—from volunteering written translations for the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in 2009, to youth mentoring for community development, to currently sitting on Hip Hop is Green's advisory board. Dominique grew up in Massachusetts and graduated from Columbia University.
But above all, Dominique is a proud daughter and granddaughter of diverse family who have been schoolteachers, civil rights workers, social workers, community organizers, sharecroppers, postal workers, veterans, and more—a legacy of resilient people. And she's an advocate for belonging at heart.
