Black Humanists Network
Coming July 5th: We live in a white-dominated society. In many ways, the secular community maintains dominant culture's white-centered structure. The Black Humanists Network is a virtual space that decenters whiteness so that Black folks that identify as humanists can have access to community to discuss issues at the intersection of race and humanism from a Black nontheist perspective.
This project exists to connect Black humanists scattered across the US (and elsewhere) that desire community but have no physical group in their area. Black Humanists Network provides interactive fellowship through text/audio/video messaging, file sharing, and private chat capabilities.
Topics to be explored include cultivating Black humanist culture, anti-black racism, white supremacy, social activism opportunities, dealing with religious family members, self-care strategies, and ways to build genuine inclusion within the atheist-humanist community.
