Screening of “Contradiction”
This event is hosted in partnership with the Secular Coalition for America and is held as part of their annual Lobby Day Summit. The screening will be at the Metropolitan East/West Room of the hotel.
Contradiction explores the black community's dedication and commitment to the church and religion. Jeremiah Camara travels the country examining the paradox of Black neighborhoods saturated with churches in the midst of poverty, deprivation and despondency. Camara seeks to find if there is a correlation between high-praise and low-productivity. More about the film here.
The event will include a Q&A with director Jeremiah Camara and will be hosted by master of ceremonies Steve Hill.

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.
