Let’s Talk About The Other Atheist Movement: ? “A time to build up / a time to break down / a time to dance…” ?
Over the last twenty-four hours, with media fixated on
Dawkins’ absence from one upcoming convention, atheists have been
gathered at another in Houston. The Secular Social Justice
conference, sponsored jointly by half a dozen orgs, highlights ‘the
lived experiences, cultural context, shared struggle and social history
of secular humanist people of color’. Sessions address the humanist
history of hip hop, the new atheism’s imperialist mission and the lack
of secular scaffolds for communities of colour in the working class US,
whether for black single mothers or recently released incarcerees.
Perhaps we could talk about this?
