Fear of a Black Atheist: How Religion Crippled the Black Community


We are excited to have Mandisa Lateefah Thomas, founder and president of Black Nonbelievers Inc., as our March speaker.


Thomas founded Black Nonbelievers, Inc. in 2011 as a secular fellowship. Its goals include eliminating stigma, increasing visibility, and providing support and networking opportunities around non-belief in the African-American community. She believes it is important to expand diversity within the black community to include people who challenge the effectiveness of the church and its doctrine, and who advocate for "more tangible, evidence-based solutions" to the challenges facing the community.


Thomas has made interview appearances in media outlets including CBS News, WABE FM 90.1's "Closer Look", NPR's "Code Switch" podcast, and the Freedom From Religion Foundation's Freethought Radio program. She has been profiled in publications including Jet magazine and Playboy, and has written opinion pieces for outlets including CNN.


In 2018, the Unitarian Universalist Humanist Association awarded Thomas its "Person of the Year" award.
