BBC World Service Explores ‘Atheists in Black America’

This weekend, BBC World Service is airing an audio segment on “Atheists in Black America.”

Today, many African-Americans see anything short of embracing religion as not just heretical but a denial of one’s very blackness.

But there are a growing number of African-Americans who openly don’t believe in God or the church.

We find out how they are trying to make their voices heard and seeking acceptance in their community.

The segment’s about 23 minutes long. A lot of familiar names are interviewed, and it’s a very well-done piece. I can’t embed it, but carve out some time to listen to this!
