Publisher's Summary

Feminism and atheism are “dirty words” that Americans across the political spectrum love to debate - and hate. Throw them into a blender and you have a toxic brew that supposedly defies decency, respectability, and Americana. Add an “unapologetically” Black critique to the mix and it’s a deal-breaking social taboo. 

Putting gender at the center of the equation, progressive “Religious Nones” of color are spearheading an anti-racist, social justice humanism that disrupts the “colorblind” ethos of European American atheist and humanist agendas, which focus principally on church-state separation. These critical interventions build on the lived experiences and social histories of segregated Black and Latinx communities that are increasingly under economic siege. 

In this context, Hutchinson makes a valuable and necessary call for social justice change in a polarized climate where Black women’s political power has become a galvanizing national force.

Powerful read

I really enjoyed listening to this book. Learning about the feminist and humanist movement from an African American woman perspective was enlightening and necessary for me. Looking forward to listening again

This Book Made Me Think

Growing up "sheltered", I had no idea of the pain that so many girls & women have gone through previously & still go through to this day. Thank you Sikivu for opening my eyes!
