Are you questioning religion? If so, tell us about your struggle. If you have been a nonbeliever for a while, how did you arrive at your nonbelief?

I was raised in a heavily religious country in Africa, but I was an avid reader. I came across a few books that indicated atheist thinking. I stopped going to church at 13 once it became clear it was a useless venture, and did not think about it for many years later, when I encountered religious bias. Then I self identified as an atheist, finally free.

Are you interested in connecting with others offline?

Yes. The black atheist community has to step up.

Are you interested in discussing the unique set of challenges that black people face when it comes to religion and religious indoctrination?

Yes. It is extremely tough to be black and an atheist.

Are you willing to contribute reasonable monetary dues and/or provide in-kind services to help cover Meetup,com fees and other group costs?

Yes. Unless you take prayer. Haha. Kidding.
