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.

Much respect to all you dark skin thinkers. After more than forty years searching it turns out you are there, this site just made the search a lot less difficult.
Real leadership can only come from intelligent people, and you are the most intelligent of all. May be you are the real "Talented Tenth". Dr. Du Bois would be proud.
Look forward to doing some good things with you guys. You're the best

I will be speaking to the Center for Inquiry/Harlem Discussion Group and the Center for Inquiry/Indiana in the near future. From August 7-9, there will be a groundbreaking gathering of African American non-theists in Atlanta, Georgia. The conference has been called by Atlanta resident Gary C. Booker in an effort to combat negative religious teachings and pseudoscience in the African community. The workshops will be held at the Atlanta Fulton Public Library downtown at 1 Margaret Mitchell Square, Atlanta, Georgia, 30307. For more information, contact Gary C. Booker at
