I know Greta Christina put this out a little while ago, but I wanted to promote it here: A gigantic list of atheists of color.
If you’re helping to organize an atheist conference, and you want your conference to be more diverse and more reflective of the makeup of the atheist community? If you’re an atheist writer or activist, and you want your quotations/citations/blogroll/etc. to be more diverse and more reflective of the makeup of the atheist community? If you’re simply part of the atheist community/movement, and you want to be more familiar with the work of a wider range of atheists, a range that’s more diverse and more reflective of the makeup of the atheist community? Hopefully, this list will help.
I would never want a conference planner or group leader to simply bring in a “token minority.” But this list is full of people who have a unique perspective on atheism and a lot to say. Their voices don’t get heard in our community nearly enough and our gatherings would benefit from their inclusion.
If you notice any omissions, feel free to let Greta know in her comment thread!
