The next monthly meeting of African Americans for Humanism DC will be held on Saturday January 24, 2015 from 1:00 PM- 3:00 PM at the Smithsonian Museum of American History located at 14th and Constitution Avenue, NW Washington DC. The Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture is scheduled to open in 2016. Until then some items from its collection and other artifacts are being displayed in the Museum of American History. One of our members has arranged to conduct a docent tour for us. The tour will take about 45 minutes to an hour depending on how many questions we have. There will also be an opportunity to see the famous “Jefferson Bible”.
About African Americans for Humanism DC
The need for critical thinking skills and a humanistic outlook in our world is great. This is no less true in the Black community than in others. Many African Americans have been engulfed by religious irrationality, conned by self-serving "faith healers", and swayed by dogmatic revisionist historians. Many others, however, have escaped the oppression of such delusions, and live happy and upstanding lives free of superstition. African Americans for Humanism (AAH) exists to bring these secular humanists together, to provide a forum for communication, and to facilitate coordinated action. In an irrational world, those who stand for reason must stand together.
The venue is wheelchair accessible. People with disabilities who anticipate needing accommodations or who have questions about physical access may email sdavis [at] centerforinquiry [dot] net in advance of the event.
