Bonus Talk: Mandisa Thomas of Black Nonbelievers: "Welcoming Atheists"

  • Have you ever walked into a meeting of people you've never met, only to feel uncomfortable, awkward, or invisible? Of course you have. Everyone has. What could have made that experience better for you? Are atheist groups more likely to be stand-offish? Are atheist groups willing and able to welcome new members? What can we change to become warmer toward people we don't know? Mandisa Latifa Thomas, founder of Black Nonbelievers, may be able to help us out.

    Mandisa Latifa Thomas founded Black Nonbelievers in 2011. She saw the need for fellowship among nonbelievers, providing an informative, caring, festive and friendly environment. Black Nonbelievers strive to connect with other Blacks (and their allies) who are living free of religion and irrational beliefs, and might otherwise be shunned by family and friends. Instead of accepting dogma, we seek to determine truth and morality through reason and evidence.

    BN welcomes all regardless of sex, sexuality, gender identity, age, national origin or race, and extends a caring embrace to all who wish to explore a meaningful and rational life.
