What we're about

You can visit our official website at blacknonbelievers.org (http://blacknonbelievers.org/).

BN is a 501c3 nonprofit secular fellowship dedicated to providing an informative, caring, festive and family friendly environment. We strive to 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 seek to 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.
• Promote atheist pride.
• Organize nonbelievers for charitable causes.

BN members meet to discuss topics relevant to secular living as well as to socialize. As a community we celebrate birthdays, holidays, and other ocasions. We offer workshops and other gatherings to educate the public on the views of nonbelievers. We also sponsor a Recovering from Religion (RR) group to assist those in need of support while questioning their faith or dealing with the challenges of leaving religion. See our Calendar (http://blacknonbelievers.wordpress.com/calendar/) for details on specific meetings and activities.

BN welcomes all regardless of sex, sexuality, gender identity, age, national origin, or race.

Let's Go Bowling!

Midtown Bowl

• What we'll do It's been a while, since our last bowling outing! Come mix, mingle and bowl with us and our neighbors at Sunday Assembly, Atlanta Freethought Society and more! No bowling experience needed, just your enthusiasm! • What to bring Bowling shoes and socks. If you need shoes, they are available at the venue for a nominal fee • Important to know The fee for lanes is $20 per hour at the walk in rate, $25 reserved. Each lane accommodates 6 ppl, so the cost for each person averages 4.50 per hour (or $9 for 2). Bowling shoes are an extra $5. Midtown Bowl no longer accepts cash for payment, but if necessary, we can put the tab on one card, and then reimburse individually. As with any bowling alley, there are food and beverages for sale, including alcoholic.

RfR Morrow Chapter - March Meetup

Barnes & Noble Booksellers Southlake

It's the monthly meetup for the Morrow chapter of Recovering from Religion! We will meet to discuss issues directly related to religious indoctrination, struggles faced, and how to better overcome them. There is no proselytizing of any kind allowed at these meetings. While BN is a proud partner and facilitator, by no means is this a tool for recruitment. Any donations incurred as a result of these meetings will go directly toward RfR efforts. Also, be sure to join the Meetup group for this chapter. Thanks so much, and we look forward to seeing you!!!

Special Edition General Meeting: Mandisa Thomas at AFS

Atlanta Freethought Society

BN's General Meeting will be combined with the Atlanta Freethought Society's monthly meeting. Mandisa Thomas will be their guest speaker! Topic: We Still Have Work To DO! AFS generally meets at noon for socializing, and then the talk starts at 1:00. Feel free to bring a dish to share. The facility is wheelchair accessible. The Atlanta Freethought Hall is a former Primitive Baptist Church, built in 1866. Atlanta Freethought Society was founded in 1985, which makes it one of Metro Atlanta's oldest secular societies. AF Hall is the meeting place for Fellowship of Reason, Freedom of Religion Foundation of Atlanta, as well as other organizations.

Glencliff High School

It's time for NaNoCon 2019!* The Nashville Nones Convention creates a uniquely needed annual gathering where non-religious people can meet up, share new ideas and good values, and build a supportive community right in the middle of the Bible Belt. NaNoCon brings together top notch secular speakers and friendly, religion-free community support at an affordable price. We aim to be an approachable experience for those who are just checking out what being good without a god is all about.

As we have done previously, BN will have a block of 10 tickets specially reserved for members who would like to attend. Please let us know ASAP if you're interested.
