A new school year begins in Chicago

Chicago Public School (CPS) students return to school this week in a dramatically different environment. School closures and consolidations have resulted in longer commutes through dangerous areas, falling school enrollment and overcrowded classrooms. The deep cuts to school budgets have also resulted in barebones classroom instruction. Meanwhile, the district has still managed to award principals thousands of dollars in merit pay bonuses.

Women of Color Beyond Faith: Call for submissions

A new anthology entitled “Women of Color Beyond Faith: Feminism, Freethought and Social Justice” is currently being developed and edited by Sikivu Hutchinson (pictured at right), president of Black Skeptics of Los Angeles, and Kimberly Veal (pictured at left), executive director of Black Non-Believers of Chicago. The anthology will address the dire need for scholarship, critical theory, and analysis of women of color non-believers, and women of color freethought and humanist traditions in the United States. Currently, there are no American book publications that address these issues from a multi-disciplinary standpoint.


This anthology will offer an important corrective to this lacuna. Going beyond basic questions of the challenges women of color non-believers face, it will articulate a vision of humanist social and gender justice that is firmly situated in the politics of anti-racism, anti-heterosexism, and anti-imperialism.


Hutchinson and Veal are seeking abstracts of approximately 500 words by September 30, 2013. All are welcome to submit an abstract and bio to by the deadline. For more information, contact Sikivu Hutchinson at the email address above.
