Bi Any Means Podcast #60: Black Humanist Alliance with Ashton P. Woods


bha

My guest for today is Ashton P. Woods, co-chair of the Black Humanist Alliance. He is an activist who, according to his bio, “openly identifies as gay, atheist, HIV positive, and unapologetically black” According to the Black Humanist Alliance’s mission statement, “While we concern ourselves with confronting expressions of religious hegemony in public policy, the BHA is also devoted to confronting social, economic, and political deprivations that disproportionately impact Black America due to centuries of culturally ingrained prejudices. Using humanism as a life praxis, the BHA seeks to realize the need for a more intersectional and more politicized scope of activism through encouraging social justice competency within secular spaces as well as by engaging in racial, gender, and restorative justice activism.” So today Ashton and I are going to talk about the Black Humanist Alliance and all that they do.
