Khafre Zimmerman (BKA King Zimm) is a Howard University graduate, member of Secular Students at Howard University and founder of the Good Sumerian Scholarship. Raised in the outskirts of Philadelphia in a Christian home, Khafre gained his secular perspective from his interest in wildlife and biology, which was later reinforced by his education in Philosophy, Psychology and History.
Khafre is best known for his career as a performance/recording artist under the name King Zimm. His maiden performance at Howard University's Homecoming concert featured a remake of "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing", with an interesting take on the spiritual journey of blacks in America. His music has been described a both courageous and controversial, tackling the complex history of the black diaspora with songs like "Change the World".
As an honored guest, Khafre will be discussing the "Gospel of Reality" or in other words, the good news offered by the secular world-view, and ways in which we black secularists can relate to a religious world, winning both minds and hearts.
With special guest Ayanna Watson, founder of Black Atheists of America, Inc. (BAAm). BAAm is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to bridging the gap between atheism and the black community. The organization has been successful in bringing together black atheists and combating the common misconception of solidarity among black atheists. With BAAm, Watson has also brought light to some of the issues that discourage black atheists from being active in both the atheist and black communities.
