Ogunyemi, Olatunji (2008) The implications of taboos among African diasporas for the African press in the United Kingdom. Journal of Black Studies, 38 (6). pp. 862-882. ISSN 0021-9347Full text not available from this repository.
The increased population of African diasporas in the United Kingdom, recently estimated at 618,000, is making them more culturally and linguistically visible than they used to be in the political and socioeconomic landscapes. It has also stimulated the proliferation of particularistic media representing their interests. However, little is known about the effects of their cultural values on the treatment of some issues in the public sphere. This article explores the relevance of taboos among African diasporas and their implications for the African press. A questionnaire was created as an instrument of collecting data about taboo subjects and preferred treatment of these subjects in the press. Furthermore, an interview was conducted with the editor of the African Voice to reflect on some of the issues emanating from the data, and a content analysis of selected taboo themes covered by the newspaper was performed.
