An African American freethinker is still regarded as a novelty, despite approximately 10% of the U.S. African American population identifying as nonreligious. African Americans for Humanism (AAH) is one of the groups trying to raise the profile of this minority within a minority, both to help these people connect when they are further marginalized by their family and friends for questioning faith and to be a voice for change within the African American community.
Debbie Goddard is the director of AAH. On Sunday, she will join us in the studio to talk about AAH’s mission, what is has accomplished (including those wonderful billboards), and where it is going from here.
- African Americans for Humanism
- Day of Solidarity for Black Non-Believers
- Religious coverage of the AAH billboards
