About Us

Black Nonbelievers (BN) is a 501 c3 non-profit organization. Headquartered in the Atlanta area, we connect with other Blacks (and allies) who are living free of religion and might otherwise be shunned by family and friends in a caring, friendly, and informative environment. Instead of accepting dogma, we determine truth and morality through reason and evidence.

The mission of Black Nonbelievers is to:

• Provide secular fellowship.

• Nurture and support nonbelievers in “coming out” (ie, openly identification).

• Promote pride in the atheist/nonreligious identity.

• Organize members for charitable causes and a variety of events.

Black Nonbelievers welcomes all regardless of age, gender identity, sexual identity, national origin, and racial identity.
