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

A snip from Secular Humanism Online News -- Re: Norm Allen Jr., by way of CFI (Council for secular Humanism), Vol. 5 No. 7 Update:

By Norm R. Allen Jr.

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

The yahoo group has some worthwhile people and discussions on it, but there are also retarded Afrocentric crackpots there whose level of conversation approaches the brain death of

There was a recent attack in British Columbia, 3 whte men attacking one Black man on the street. It was caught on by a bystander who posted on YouTube. I posted a link here in the "Conversations on Race, Ethnicity, Culture" group, so am not re-posting here, to avoid redundancy. Comments welcome.

As I commented there, it's amazing what YouTube is doing to change the world. Without it, we would rarely have the graphic evidence for this type of episode.

The visual effect of a group of young white men approach someone with intimidation is educational, to say the least.

I hope that members of this discussion group are also aware of the discussion group "Conversations on Race, Ethnicity, and Culture".

The purpose of the group is for members to learn and discuss about roles of race and ethnicity. This includes discussion of what is the current racial and ethnic situation, how did the current situation evolve, how to improve the current status, and improve understanding in general. Most topics are started based on current news articles, editorials, and events, but also thoughts that come to mind.

I hope this is interesting regardless of someone's race or ethnic backgrounds. Also, from people in different regions and nationalities.

This is a bit separate from the Black Freethought discussion group, although naturally there is some overlap. Both groups have very important roles on A|N.

It would be great to see the group grow! I hope to see more discussion and some positive steps taken in understanding and building friendship.
