110 - Mandisa Thomas of Black Nonbelievers

March 6, 2022
On this episode we welcome to the show a very special guest Mandisa Thomas the founder and President of Black Nonbelievers. Ms. Thomas is not only someone who all three co-host have admired for the work she has accomplished in the Atheist movement in the last decade plus, we also have the pleasure of considering her to be a personal friend.
 
I know we promised a Covid free episode and we still owe you one, the next one. We couldn't talk to Mandisa about the last decade without how she adjusted during the pandemic. Believe me though, it's a small portion of the conversation and of course it was Jeff that opened that door.
