Second Annual Black Nonbelievers Convention at Sea
From Mandisa Thomas, President of Black Nonbelievers, Inc.:
On November 25–30, 2017, Black Nonbelievers embarked for our first Convention at Sea! You may have heard some of this before, but we want to share even more of our excitement about it, and we also want to share some exciting details about our 2018 Convention at Sea!
In 2017, some of our amazing speakers were Jeremiah Camara, Sikivu Hutchinson, Debbie Goddard (of African Americans for Humanism), and Sean Rivera (of the SSA at UTSA). They spoke on a wide range of important issues facing atheists and all black nonbelievers in the US, which our attendees loved.
Thirty-two attendees joined us on this maiden voyage, and had the opportunity to take part in some fantastic activities, such as a Sailaway Party (with plenty of dancing!), karaoke, a themed adult scavenger hunt, and so much more. Our attendees shared with us just how much taking part in this community has impacted their lives.
I’m not here just to tell you about last year’s event, though! I’m very excited to announce that on November 24–29, 2018, you will have another opportunity to take part in our Convention at Sea! We will back aboard the Carnival Sensation sailing out of Miami and going to Grand Turk and then the Dominican Republic!
We are delighted to have new speakers such as Candace Gorham, author of The Ebony Exodus Project; Detryck Von Doom, head and organizer of the Louisville Friends of Satan; and Monette Richards, president of the board of Secular Woman, join us this year. Cabins start at only $750 (double occupancy), and include convention registration along with cabin fare and port fees.
We hope that you too can join us in 2018!
