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.


Black Nonbelievers can be found in the following cities (Click to find the one nearest you)
Atlanta, GA

New York City, NY
Portland, OR

Washington, D.C.

  • Paying Tribute
    Greetings, I had originally planned to write about Black History Month, and how this is also the time that we express love, and how those two things can come together to support Black Nonbelievers and our very important work. However, I must now pay tribute and show love to two of our members who passed …
