Black Atheists in the Pulpit: Dialogue with Zion Hill Baptist Church







On February 1st, Black Skeptics Los Angeles will join with Zion Hill Baptist Church in South Los Angeles for a historic Black History Month presentation and roundtable.  The event will feature Moral Combat author Sikivu Hutchinson and author Donald Wright.  The Houston-based Wright is the author of The Only Prayer I’ll Ever Pray and founder of the February 26th Day of Solidarity for Black Non-Believers.  Last year, members of Black Skeptics L.A. met with Zion Hill and posed probing questions about the state of the Black Church, the role of black humanism in African American social thought, and the Religious Right’s influence on contemporary politics.  Zion Hill Pastor Seth Pickens has been with the church since 2009 and is a Morehouse College alum with a deep commitment to social justice in South Los Angeles.
