Journalism Professor Releases New Book

“Music and Messaging in the African Political Arena” by Uche Onyebadi

Uche Onyebadi, associate professor and chair of the Department of Journalism, has written a new book that releases this month. “Music and Messaging in the African Political Arena” focuses on the way musicians, political interest groups, political activists and other stakeholders use songs and music for political messaging in African politics. It underlines the need for more extensive research in this fairly new area of political communication scholarship in Africa.

The edited collection is organized into 14 chapters and features more than 20 contributors. It is published by IGI Global and appears in the book series, “Advances in Religious and Cultural Studies.”
