Welcome to PFC's monthly lecture night series!
Each month (with the exception of August and December) we feature a presentation/lecture on a variety of topics. Our primary focus is on science, but we also have talks on skepticism and humanism and beyond. We try to structure the meetings to begin with a presentation that leaves time for great discussions and Q&A sessions afterward. We try to post the topic and speaker bio as soon as that information is known -- please check back soon. If you have speaker suggestions and/or ideas that are in keeping with our mission, please feel free to email your suggestions to email@example.com.
Our speaker for March is Mandisa Thomas, Founder and President of Black Nonbelievers, Inc. She has appeared on CBS Sunday Morning and CNN, and in the publications Playboy, The Humanist, and JET. She has appeared on several podcasts in addition to appearing in the documentaries Contradiction and My Week in Atheism.
Mandisa currently serves on the Boards of both American Atheists and American Humanist Association. She was named the UU Humanist Association's Person of the Year for 2018.
The title for Mandisa's talk is "Fear of a Black Atheist: How Religion Has Crippled the Black Community"
Please note: This event will be held at Carnegie Melon University, not the normal venue.
See you there!
P.S. We usually head to Ali Baba's on nearby Craig Street at 5:30 p.m. for a pre-lecture or pre-movie dinner. Please leave a comment below if you are coming to dinner so we can include you in the reservation. Thanks!
