What we're about
The need for critical thinking skills and a humanistic outlook in our world is great. This is no less true in the Black community than in others. Many African Americans have been engulfed by religious irrationality, conned by self-serving "faith healers", and swayed by dogmatic revisionist historians. Many others, however, have escaped the oppression of such delusions, and live happy and upstanding lives free of superstition.
African Americans for Humanism DC (AAH DC) exists to bring these secular humanists together, to provide a forum for communication, and to facilitate coordinated action. In an irrational world, those who stand for reason must stand together.
With some exceptions, AAH DC is held every fourth Saturday of the month at the Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital, 921 Pennsylvania Avenue, S.E. Washington DC. The Center is located 1.5 blocks from the Eastern Market Metro Station.
All events are crosslisted with the Center for Inquiry–DC website, Convio, Facebook, and other sites, so RSVPs on this site constitute a minority of RSVPs .
