About Domonique

Dominque Demetrea Conway is a Baltimore-based activist and author who writes non-fiction that embodies her lived experience as a person of African descent in the United States, and a resident of West Baltimore. Born in Evanston, Illinois and raised in the nation’s rustbelt, she is the mother of four adult children. As an activist, Dominque has engaged in work addressing mass incarceration and political imprisonment in the United States. Her work with men in prisons resulted in the creation of Friend of a Friend, a prison-based mentoring program designed to teach critical thinking skills to young prisoners. Dominque has a BA from Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont, and received an MFA from Goucher College in Baltimore in May 2021. She is the co-author of Marshall Law: The Life and Times of a Baltimore Black Panther, the memoir of Black Panther political prisoner Eddie Conway. Her current project, Far From The Tree, is a genealogical memoir examining the impact of racism and trauma on consecutive generations of her family spanning three centuries in America.
