Don’t JUST talk about it, BE about it! Secular Efforts in the Black Community (at IU Bloomington)
AAH Advisor Mandisa Thomas will discuss how to increase secular efforts in the black community. This talk is sponsored by the Secular Alliance at IU (SAIU) and the African American and African Diaspora Studies at Indiana University (AAADS).
Mandisa Thomas, a native of New York City, is a founder and current President of Black Nonbelievers, Inc. Although never formally indoctrinated into belief, Mandisa was heavily exposed to Christianity, Black Nationalism, and a bit of Islam. As President of Black Nonbelievers, Inc., Mandisa works to encourage more blacks to come out and stand strong with their nonbelief in the face of such strong religious overtones. "The more we make our presence known, the better our chances of working together to turn around some of the disparities we face. We are NOT alone."
