About the Author

Sikivu Hutchinson is an educator, author, and playwright. She is the founder of Black Skeptics Los Angeles and the Women's Leadership Project, a mentoring and civic engagement program for South L.A. girls of color.


"The time is now for Humanists in the Hood. With compassionate, razor-sharp clarity, Sikivu Hutchinson provides a courageously bold Black, feminist, and atheist road map to liberating ourselves, our communities, and U.S. society. She invites and challenges readers to step outside of comfort zones to consider different possibilities in response to the oppressive systems that silence and annihilate all of us on the margins. Hutchinson's words are a clarion call for radical, tangible actions for these perilous times." --Aishah Shahidah Simmons, author of Love WITH Accountability, and Producer/Director of NO! The Rape Documentary
"Humanists in the Hood is an acute reminder of the struggle we as Black women have and still experience. It has documented in one place, our travels and travails." --Bridgette Crutchfield, Black Nonbelievers of Detroit
"Humanists in the Hood is a must read for everyone, but especially anyone who considers themselves progressive and supportive of marginalized people. With her in-depth analysis, Sikivu has issued yet another challenge -- to take a long, hard look historically, institutionally, and, most important, internally, into the often complex world of feminism and how humanist/secular values have and must continue to inform our fight for equality." --Mandisa Thomas, Founder and President, Black Nonbelievers, Inc.
