A Black Atheist Explains What Led Her Away from Religion

OmoIgbo is a Black female atheist who’s trying to understand how she ended up in that (extremely) tiny demographic given that her family and friends remain religious. (She came from a Pentecostal family, where church services are intense, to say the least.)

We all have personal stories of what led us away from religion, but in an attempt to make her experience more universal, OmoIgbo boils it down to a combination of factors including space away from her family, introspection, a desire to learn things outside her bubble, and more.

How many of those factors played a role in your deconversion? Was there something else that had a bigger influence on you?
