The photo displayed is of Harlem soapbox orator, agitator, popular educator, & atheist Hubert Henry Harrison.

Documentation of black atheism, freethought, & humanism on the web can be found in my atheist web guide.

See also my working bibliography.

I also have a general interest blog, Reason & Society.

Some of you may also be interested in some of my other projects, e.g. The Autodidact Project, my Studies in a Dying Culture (blog), and my Emergence blog. You can also listen to my podcasts: my Internet radio show is called "Studies in a Dying Culture," hosted by Think Twice Radio.

Alix Jules, chair of the DFWCoR Diversity Council, was interviewed by Ebony Magazine about being a black atheist. Make sure you pick up the July issue for the full article!

Anyone knows where I can find violent biblical imagery for a video montage I'm putting together. Public domain preferably. Thanks

Glad you're feeling better Ralph! I'm not that far from Regent University, I'll try to see if I can convince seven or eight students to actually read their holy texts and entertain a little uncertainty!!!

I've been sick for the past month, haven't had time to check in here.  We're getting close to the 400-member mark. Who's going to put us over the top?

This too shall pass. Americans are very caught up in other people business an suspect it it because they have none of their own. How dare you be able to make tough decisions without their input. You keep doing what you and rely on you own support circle. If you need it, I'm here and would be glad to share my phone number. A supporter unwilling to standup with you isn't much help.

It's so hard being black and atheist....I thought being gay was the hardest thing I'd ever faced....that's cake compared to the atheist thing when your entire life has been based on Jesus, God and the evangelical christian church!!!
