National Day of Solidarity for Black Nonbelievers

The Black Day of Solidarity for Nonbelievers is a national event endorsed by a number of well-known national secular humanist organizations, including Center for Inquiry, the Richard Dawkins Foundation, and Atheists of America. We will localize it at a two-hour event. More information can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Day-of-Solida...

    Question: Do I have to be a black person to be affiliated with your group? Answer: Being black is not needed in order to have any kind of a positive relationship with our group. Our group is modeled after Black Nonbelievers of Atlanta. BNA has a very good reputation that spans across black secular humanist networks; it also has a good reputation with freethinker organizations with a broader agenda. We only ask that you try to understand the unique challenges that black nonbelievers often face.

    Question: What kinds of activities are planned for the first meetup? Answer: The first meetup is designed to be a multipurpose event that does the following: 1) it will allow us to get acquainted; 2) it will allow us to share personal stories when it comes to our lack of belief; 3) it will allow us to discuss what we know about the history of black freethinkers in the U.S. and abroad; it will allow us to make the first steps to plan ahead for future activities.

    Question: Once a person arrives at the first meetup, how will he or she know who to look for or where to go? Answer: If you see some black people hanging out together when you arrive at our first meetup, then they might be us. If you arrive but aren't sure it's us, you could find out whether or not it's us by asking the group of black people, "BNO?" Also, you could look for me, Rich. I also go by my birth name, Richard. I'm also the organizer of this online meetup site

    Our first meetup will be held at a site familiar to people who've interacted with the Orlando Freethinkers group from time to time. If you use a GPS-linked tool to find places --such as Google Maps or the GPS device in your car or truck--then MAKE SURE you use the address that is listed as the Longwood (#4157) site on the Panera Bread Company website in order to find our particular meetup location. You want to pick the right Panera! Go here for more info: www.panerabread.com/cafes/find.php

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
