Diaspora News Magazine appoints leading black journalist as new editor

Diaspora News Magazine, a London-based community magazine, has announced the appointment of leading black journalist, author and human rights activist, Deborah Gabriel, as its new editor.

Diaspora News, a non-profit organization headed by Thomas Musau, publishes the popular bi-monthly magazine which is aimed at the many black communities in the UK from Africa, the Caribbean and elsewhere in the Diaspora. Its mission is to reach out both to long established communities and newer migrant communities to inform educate and inspire, as a means of promoting educational, career and business success.

Deborah Gabriel’s journalism career has taken her both to the Caribbean and Africa, whilst in the UK she has spent the last three years as Editor of the Colourful Network, an online media publisher incorporating daily news and talk radio. She runs her own media company Imani Media Ltd, specializing in web design, publishing and media training and in September published her first book: Layers of Blackness: Colourism in the African Diaspora. She also heads human rights organization Imani Development Ltd.

Commenting on her new role she said: “I am delighted to have been appointed to this position, not least because this is a magazine that recognizes that sometimes we have to put people before profits to better serve our communities. Its central focus is about highlighting successes within the Diaspora whilst providing inspiration and guidance to help others to fulfil their ambitions and become productive members of their communities, I am all for that.”

She will continue her role as editor of Colourful Network in addition to her other business responsibilities but takes everything in her stride. “I am always ready to rise to new challenges. Often people are amazed that I manage to do so many things, but I only ever take on roles that complement the work that I am already doing and I am not afraid of hard work,” she said.

Commenting on the new appointment, Thomas Musau said: “We are extremely honoured to have a top writer and journalist working with us as our new Editor for our magazine. I am sure this will enhance our position as the leading community magazine dedicated to the upliftment of black communities in the UK and abroad.”
