Atheism & The Black Community - Mandisa Thomas on How Religion Crippled the Black Community

Earlier this Fall I had "the pleasure of meeting Mandisa Thomas a fellow Atheist and Founder and current President of Black Nonbelievers, Inc. The Houston Black Nonbelievers put on an event called "'Growing Secularism in the Black Community' - HBN Presents Mandisa Thomas" and at the event Mandisa spoke about taking the lead as a Black woman and her experiences over the last five years with founding and running Black Nonbelievers."

It is with great pleasure that I share a video that I ran across featuring Mandisa giving a speech on "How Religion Crippled the Black Community." It was filmed by Dane Sorensen during a meeting of the Secular Humanists of the Low Country in Charleston, South Carolina back in March of 2012. Watch and enjoy!
