BN is a fellowship of nonbelievers dedicated to providing an informative, caring, festive and family friendly environment. We strive to connect with other Blacks (and their allies) who are living free of religion and irrational beliefs who 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. We extend a caring embrace to all who wish to participate in exploring a meaningful rational life.


The mission of Black Nonbelievers is to…
        • Provide secular fellowship.
        • Nurture and support nonbelievers in coming out.
        • Promote atheist pride.
        • Organize nonbelievers for charitable causes.


BN members meet to discuss topics relevant to secular living as well as to socialize. As a community we celebrate birthdays, holidays, weddings and other ocasions. We offer workshops and other gatherings to educate the public on the views of nonbelievers. Unless otherwise noted, all meetings are open to the general public. (See our Calendar for details on specific meetings and activities.)


Why is this a fellowship of ’nonbelievers’?
The word ‘nonbeliever’ speaks to the kind of mindset we encourage. We encourage people to move from  a believer mindset of faith and gullibility to a freethinker mindset of reason and rationality. We aren’t just nonbelievers in religion. We are nonbelievers in any claim, religious or otherwise, that is not supported by good evidence. Each of us may be at different stages on the journey of rational enlightenment. As freethinkers (rational nonbelievers) we evaluate beliefs and claims, then  humbly change course when the evidence calls for a different conclusion.


Black Nonbelievers can also be found on Facebook and!
