Dr Deborah Gabriel created this site in August 2011 for Black bloggers in the UK. It has since expanded to include blogs throughout the African Diaspora including north America, the Caribbean and Africa. She holds a PhD in Media and Cultural Studies for her thesis: Blogging While Black and British: An Exploratory Study on the Use of Blogs as Social, Cultural and Counterhegemonic Practice. She is a Senior Lecturer in Politics, Media, Culture and Communication at Bournemouth University and the Founder and Director of Black British Academics.
Our Site Is Highly Valued Because:
- It makes a more diverse spectrum of blogs and bloggers available to the general public.
- It helps to deepen cultural understanding across different ethnic groups.
- It provides site visitors with access to multicultural content.
