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.

This too shall pass. Americans are very caught up in other people business an suspect it it because they have none of their own. How dare you be able to make tough decisions without their input. You keep doing what you and rely on you own support circle. If you need it, I'm here and would be glad to share my phone number. A supporter unwilling to standup with you isn't much help.

It's so hard being black and atheist....I thought being gay was the hardest thing I'd ever faced....that's cake compared to the atheist thing when your entire life has been based on Jesus, God and the evangelical christian church!!!

I'm not trying to siphon off participants in this group, but I just started and Ex-Pentecostals and Charismatics group, "for those who have been slain in the Spirit." Come and Join!

The spammer's account was finally deleted sometime late yesterday.
Comment by Ralph Dumain on April 17, 2011 at 7:22am
I've received the spam as well. I would ban said individual from this list, but I think the spammer should be banned from this site as a whole. Let's see what happens.

@George. Pain in the arse isn't it.

I reported that same spammer using the "Report an Issue" button a little after midnight (14 hours ago), and I'm still receiving spam!

You're welcome Mary.


You might want to still send a quick message to them as well. Just to let them know this isn't an isolated issue.

@Blade otB: Thank you!
