Jamila Bey on African-American atheists and loneliness
National Public Radio interviewed the African-American atheist Jamila Bey and the host of the interview said:
|“|| ...for a couple of centuries, African-American culture has been imbued with Christianity. The church figured prominently in both the abolitionist and civil rights movements. And today in many communities, the Christian church continues to be the nucleus of black life.
So, what about the black nonbelievers? It's one isolating experience, according to Jamila Bey.
