The BLACKOUT: Secular Rally is the first-ever rally featuring

non-believers of color and is scheduled for Saturday, July 27th at Flushing Meadows

Park in Queens, New York from 1:30pm to 6:00 pm.

The event is being hosted by Black Atheists of America and Black NonBelievers.

The purpose of the event is to celebrate secularism and discuss activism,

particularly as it applies to communities of color.  The celebration will

come in the form of musicians, poets and speakers.  BLACKOUT will be a

chance to showcase both, the growing numbers of secular minorities and

pro-secular speakers and performers who may not be well known outside the

African-American community.

The event is family-oriented and appropriate for all ages.
