    DOORS OPEN AT NOON.  LECTURE BEGINS AT 1:00 PM


    Mandisa Thomas is the founder and President of Black Nonbelievers, Inc. Although never formally indoctrinated into belief, Mandisa was heavily exposed to Christianity, Black Nationalism, and Islam. As a child she loved reading, and enjoyed various tales of Gods from different cultures, including Greek and Ghanaian.

    ‘Through reading these stories and being taught about other cultures at an early age, I quickly noticed that there were similarities and differences between those deities and the God of the Christian Bible. I couldn’t help but wonder what made this God so special that he warrants such prevalence in today’s society,’ she recalls.

    Mandisa has a number of media appearances to her credit, including CBS Sunday Morning, CNN.com, and JET magazine. She has been a guest on podcasts such as The Humanist Hour and Ask an Atheist, as well as the documentaries Contradiction and My Week in Atheism. Mandisa currently serves on the Boards for American Atheists and the Reason Rally Coalition, and previously for Foundation Beyond Belief and the Secular Coalition for America. She also is an active speaker, and has presented at conferences/conventions for Freedom from Religion Foundation, Secular Student Alliance, and many others.

    As the president of Black Nonbelievers, Inc., Mandisa works to encourage more Blacks to come out and stand strong with their nonbelief in the face of such strong religious overtones.

    PLACE AND TIME TO BE ANNOUNCED

    ***SHELLEY SEGAL 2019 AMERICAN TOUR***

    “A master of creating experiential art’ -Chris Hofstader (Skepchick)

    Indie folk artist Shelley Segal uses her music to create the world she wants to see. To reflect, challenge, comfort and inspire herself and her audience The rootsy singer songwriter and guitarist is a seasoned tour warrior, honing her live show at bars, clubs, festivals and lounge rooms across Australia, UK and North America over the last 5 years

    “One of a newer breed of Melbourne folk acts mixing traditional sounds with jazz and pop for a unique and broadly appealing result” -Beat Magazine

    Shelley grew up in Melbourne, Australia, in a religious community. As young adult she questioned her Jewish tradition with it’s strict rules and rituals which separated men and women.

    Through her music, Shelley has become a staunch human rights advocate which grew out of her anger with those strict rules and regulations that especially affect women and those who want to live on their own terms

    “Who is the Holy Man and what does he believe? That we must cover up our bodies, we must show humility. I believe my body is beautiful and it belongs to me” -Shelley Segal in ‘Holy Man’ 

    Shelley’s songs relate to her journey, discussing issues of religious freedom, tribalism, and women’s issues of rape culture and inclusion over mercurial vocals, spirited and soaring one moment and the next, bottomless; growling out lyrics that poke and prod and never leave.
