RADIO TABOO

Radio Taboo is a development project and documentary film about Issa Nyaphaga, a political journalist in exile returning to his small village in West Africa to build a regional community radio station to educate his community about subjects that are often too taboo to talk about.  This station will reach over one million listeners and serve as a model for communities across Africa.  By broadcasting information about public health, women’s issues and human rights, Issa empowers people in the region through public education.  The project is the subject of a documentary film partially funded by National Geographic.  The Center for Emergent Diplomacy recently hosted a film screening and fundraising events with Mr. Nyaphaga.
