    A group I'm a part of on Facebook was kind enough to pass along a series on Black atheism. I haven't read all of them yet but so far I've been finding them interesting. I think the value of these personal stories shows a side of the Black community that isn't often seen:

    Atheist are often thought of as sort of coming in one form/version of disbelief, and I think this sort of shows this simply isn't the case with the added bonus of being an atheist and Black.

    Man, those articles are so well written. Amazing how education is anathema to superstition. It's as if superstition flee before education.
