This month's discussion topic: 

This meeting’s discussion will center on two articles from the January/February 2013 edition of “the Humanist”. The articles are “Humanism in a Shitstorm” by renowned author and atheist blogger Greta Christina, in which she reveals how humanism helped her get through difficult personal circumstances and “With Liberty and Justice for All” by John Shook who argues for humanism as the basis for a just and ethical society. John Shook is the Director of Education for the Center for Inquiry and Coordinator for the Center‘s Science and the Public program. Both articles are freely available via the above links.

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.
