I think Template:WikiProject African diaspora should allow for template and category-class. Template class via that template are currently in Category:NA-Class African diaspora articles but articles from WikiProject Africa are showing up in Category:Template-Class African diaspora articles and Category:Category-Class African diaspora articles. -- Ricky81682 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 06:45, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

Should it have an articles?[edit]

Should Stereotypes of Africans have an articles? Dwanyewest (talk) 18:22, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

Any article is substantial and relevant if enough references and source material can be found on the subject, whether that's from the internet, books, articles, etc. There's no point in having one that's written in a style where there's no reference points and it's just going to get flagged anyway.

London Black Atheists[edit]

I've written a new page London Black Atheists which is an organisation for atheists from the African diaspora, and I took the liberty of adding it to the project, if that's ok and someone feels like rating it on the talk page, that would be great, thanks. Mramoeba (talk) 21:20, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

Discussion at Talk:Fred Jones Jr.[edit]

I started discussion at Talk:Fred Jones Jr. about the notability of Fred Jones Jr., an American entrepreneur. Please comment there. Thanks. --George Ho (talk) 12:37, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Sourcing at Dick Gregory[edit]

Can some folks help improve the sourcing on the Dick Gregory article? I nominated it for the Recent Deaths section on the main page (and added a number of sources myself), but per ongoing discussion it's not good enough to include yet (and might not be in time at this rate). As pointed out in another recent death discussion, it might look problematic to readers not familiar with Wikipedia's policies that the front page currently features comedian Jerry Lewis, but not Dick Gregory, who died sooner. (Note per WP:CANVASS I am not asking people to !vote on the recent death nomination, I'm asking for improvements to the article.) Funcrunch (talk) 16:36, 22 August 2017 (UTC)
