In my opinion the DC Day of Solidarity was success. I had great time it was nice to finally meet African American woman of like mine. I look forward to continuing to work with these individuals

I have relatives in Houston. Now it occurs why I don't entertain the notion of moving there!

Regina, we must meet. I am here in Houston. We are having a Day of Solidarity event today at 2pm at Cafe Express Uptown, Post Oak near 610 West Loop. You are not alone anymore.

Thank you for the invite.  I'm here in Houston and so far I have not met a black person in Houston that thinks the same way I do.  I am sick and tired of people trying to put their hands on me in their B.S. effort to try to "heal" me in the name of Bubbles a.k.a. Jesus.

There is one Jewish guy that lives in my apartment building and he always refer to me as his favorite atheist.  Which drew a few gasps last nite and lots of knocks on my door last nite with a bunch of prayer behind it.

Have fun.

The NYC event for the Day of Solidarity for Black Non-Believers will be in Harlem. In fact the next closes promoted events are in D.C and Philadelphia. So this is serving the whole Tri-State (NY,NY & CT) area.

 

We're putting a special twist on our usual Mind Food + "Soul Food" combo. The details will interest you!

CFI-Harlem/Harlem Humanists will be gathering on Sunday February 26th to celebrate Day of Solidarity for Black Non-believers. This is a time to get together and enjoy bright minds and warm personalities. There's a noble story of freethought from within the African American and Pan-African tradition. This is a chance to connect with this tradition and each other. We'll begin at 1pm. The place is 583 Riverside Dr. in the "Brick Room". It's free. Just e-mail (harlem@centerforinquiry.net) or call (646-820-CFIH) for all the details." RSVP if you can.

See you there. Regardless, please share this in the next two days with all you think will be interested.

Day of Solidarity for Black Non-Believers - Sunday Feb 26

"The percentage of black non-believers in the U.S. is small but increasing. Most have difficulty meeting other black non-believers or finding many who are involved in secular organizations. The internet has made many connections possible; however, the common feelings expressed by black non-believers are those of isolation, loneliness, and alienation. Often the remedy for these feelings is activism. This activism includes diligently searching for and befriending other non-believers, working with as many other non-believers as possible to address social ills, continuing to be educated about the factual world, providing positive expressions for secular ideas through writing and public speaking, and strengthening the secular community by supporting existing organizations as well as creating dynamic new ones. Unfettered activism is captured in the purpose of the Day of Solidarity for Black Non-Believers."
