This group does not have any discussions yet.
On December the 8th. A Grenadian organisation will be having a fund raising event, for a school back home. It is held at, St. Therese of Lisieux (Little Flower) School in Brooklyn, New York. Come support this fund raising book event. I will be there. $20 to enter.
The Day of Solidarity for Black Non-Believers (DoS) is held annually on the final weekend in February. Nonbelievers use this day as an opportunity to build genuine communal relationships and launch a wave of activism among non-theists of color. The DoS event is also an effort to bring out closeted nonbelievers and let them know that they are not alone.
The event is Free and open to the public. ALL are Welcome.

Ayanna Watson of Black Atheists of America has sparked a project focusing on the diversity of careers within the secular community. The project includes photographic portraits and some personal testimony about work experience, passion and aspiration.
Ayanna will introduce some of the project’s participants. There will be the chance to ask questions and share stories, including your own.
Seon M. Lewis, The Spice Island Atheist and one of the voices of Caribbean Atheists, is a consistent Harlem Community member many of us know from his sharp observations, broad knowledge and warm easygoing style. He recently completed the book “From Mythology to Reality: Moving Beyond Rastafari”. His liberating intellectual journey from theism, through mystical Afrocentrism, to reasoned non-theism is one of following the evidence to where it leads.
Seon will share how he came to write his book, which challenges pseudo-history and false assumptions about a vital resistance culture. It also looks at how an inspiring rebel community can fall pray to sexism, racism, homophobia and xenophobia. The way he respectfully engages family and community in a conversation about mythology and fiction vs. reality and facts is an informative one. How to be Afrocentric without drowning in the dogma of Afrocentrism, or any “...ism” including our own, is part of what he’ll share.

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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
