“BN provides a home…to get connected and establishes a needed support system.”
– Keisha Rhines-Thomas
We often talk about how Black Nonbelievers changes lives. As Keisha says, this isn’t just talk! We are out there with you building a positive community for everyone that we can reach. Without your support, we could not do such amazing things in so many cities around the country.
Your support means the world to us, as we seek to change the world for Black Nonbelievers everywhere.
P.S. Have you registered for our Second Annual Black Nonbelievers Convention at Sea yet? We are so excited to be setting sail again this year, and we hope that you are too! We’ve even announced some new speakers and details here.
“Since 2015, the Black Nonbelievers affiliate chapter in Louisville, Kentucky has offered a safe space for minorities who’ve left religion. Not just an online outlet, BN Louisville’s presence is in its face to face interactions each month to build a community for those entrenched in black religiosity.”
– Monica Burns, Louisville chapter leader
Don’t forget that this week, BN will be tabling at the American Atheists convention in Oklahoma City! Find out all the info here.

Did you catch me speaking on the Ask an Atheist podcast with Sam Mulvey last month? It was a great interview that I’d love to have you check out, if you missed it previously. If you want to skip directly to me, pop into the podcast at the 17-minute mark!
We discuss Black Nonbelievers’ exciting history, how we got started in Atlanta before expanding nationally, and how we just expanded into Portland and Cincinnati! I also discuss how important it is being a space for black nonbelievers while also being inclusive of anyone who shares the organization’s mission and values.
“Making someone feel welcome and comfortable…isn’t something inherent to a religious identity…and it’s probably more genuine because there isn’t a reward from a god for being nice. Religion and the Church don’t have a monopoly on fellowship.”
I am working hard to build communities around the country for people like you, and many that you probably know, to have a space where you all feel welcomed, valued, included, and empowered as member of a community that you love.
Please head over to the podcast, check it out, and then get involved with Black Nonbelievers in any way that you can! Every one of our members means so much to me, and to all of BN’s volunteers and leaders.
Each month, we send out an email to our members to keep you all up to date on new developments within Black Nonbelievers!
If you are not already signed up for them, please sign up for BN’s monthly communications here!
This year is halfway done, and has been a busy one here at Black Nonbelievers. We’re still connecting with you in person nationwide, and providing support however we can. But one important matter for the year is our Convention at Sea in November. We’re getting ready to sail, and we still want you to be there!
There are some slots left, so if you’re still interested, be sure to click here: BN Convention at Sea. The next set of payments for those already enlisted are due immediately, so check your invoices to get those in!
