Ayana Watson is the founder of BAAm and has courageously been speaking out about Atheism in a community where religion is ingrained in their families and culture. In her words, Black Atheists often find themselves part of a dual minority, and she often finds herself as the only Black person at many Atheist Conventions.
Not only courageous, but highly intelligent and articulate, she has been working very hard putting herself out there, doing radio shows, youtube videos etc etc often in the face of disapproval, criticism and adversity. Her hard work has given other Black Atheists a place to go, where they can share their thoughts & express their views without fear of judgement.
My hat goes off to you Ayana. And with regards to Jermaine, I feel 'blessed' that despite the labels that are placed on us in our society, we freethinkers can find common ground from opposite sides of the globe, and work together on mutually beneficial projects and form lifetime friendships.
