What we're about

BN is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Headquartered in the Atlanta area, we provide an informative, caring, festive and friendly community. We connect with other Blacks (and allies) who are living free of religion and irrational beliefs who might otherwise be shunned by family and friends. Instead of accepting dogma, we determine truth and morality through reason and evidence.

Mission Statement
The mission of Black Nonbelievers is to:
• Provide secular fellowship.
• Nurture and support nonbelievers in "coming out" (ie, open identification).
• Encourage pride in nonreligious identities.
• Educate the public on the history and current state of nonbelief in the Black community.
• Organize events and charitable causes.

BN activities include: general meetings, support meetings, service projects, event tabling, participation in research studies, media interviews, social outings, and annual holiday celebrations.

BN welcomes all regardless of sex, sexuality, gender identity, age, national origin, or race. However, in providing a safe space for Blacks who are atheist or questioning, we do ask that non-Blacks who participate offer a supportive role and try not to dominate or center themselves in any way.
