About Me

Ashley McDonough is a Howard University graduate, journalist, producer and founder of Melanin On The Map. Growing up first-generation American, with parents of Caribbean descent, travel and culture has been a passion of hers from a young age. Having traveled to over 10 countries before the age of 25, McDonough realized early on the positive impact travel has had on her life, soon leading her into a career helping other minorities experience the same.


After years of working in editorial and digital production, McDonough combined her passion for travel, culture and storytelling, birthing Melanin On the Map in 2019.
