Black Beyond Belief: A Second Trailer

A few months ago, I wrote about Sean Austin’s film project: a documentary examining the intersection of religion, non-belief, philosophy, and community in the lives of black atheists.

Since I last posted, Sean has traveled to Pennsylvania and Michigan in pursuit of stories, and he has also done interviews around Chicago. Black Beyond Belief isn’t quite ready for the public, but a second trailer is here!

Take a look:

    damn, i’m excited about this. this is what needs to happen. as we say at another blog i frequent, “more like this, Please.”

    black people are chained to the church these days, mostly. it sickens me. as a black person, i am so very tired of being told “jeebus this, jeebus that, and that’s why we can’t have nice things” and crap like that.

    go, Black Atheist documentary makers! or white ones, or whatever.

      I notice you’re in Chicago – Crommunist (of Freethought blogs) will be on a panel talk Friday at DePaul on atheism – he’s a Black atheist and thought I’d throw that out.

        As will Dr. Sikivu Hutchison and Dr. Tony Pinn–also black atheists! They’re all going to be at the panel.

      Oops. The missing audio was my own hardware problem.
