Today, we're asking you to resolve with us.

What does that mean?



In this blog, former HSC Ghana volunteer Christian Hayden shares his thoughts on the Year of Return.

The “Year of Return, Ghana 2019” is a major campaign inviting the worldwide African Diaspora to return to Ghana.  The year chosen commemorates 400 years since the first enslaved African arrived in Jamestown, Virginia.

A few historians have challenged the significance of this date and the meaning assigned to it with deep and well thought-out arguments. I feel their positions and feel that anyone concerned about the 400-year commemoration should read these articles and be enlightened by the context they provide. Here, I would rather talk about what we might do with this globally-assigned date for folks of various identities connected to the African Diaspora, and see if we might allow ourselves to coalesce as one species— one race— to be guided by its lessons; to work together towards a future that seeks to unravel and heal the damage and destruction bestowed on African-descended bodies, as well as the collective moral and environmental health of the civilizations of this earth.

Autumn has begun, and you're gonna "fall" for what our BBN teams have been up to!

The Atheist Community of Polk County, in Polk County, Florida held their biweekly cleanups of their adopted stretch of highway this month. At the second cleanup, the deep ditches along the roadway finally dried out and the team was able to get to a bunch of trash that was previously unreachable. They filled 26 bags and removed 2 old tires!

This article is part of a series written by FBB volunteers detailing their experiences in the Humanist Service Corps. The opinions expressed in this article may not necessarily express those of Foundation Beyond Belief as a whole, its staff, or donors.

Elroy Leday is a Humanist Service Corps volunteer who has traveled to Ghana for the first time as part of a year-long service commitment in the town of Cape Coast. This is his second entry in this blog series. (Click here for his first installment.)

October 2019.

Hi everyone, Elroy here. I wanted to give you all an update on my most recent month. It was very action-packed. It started with a festival called Orange Friday, which itself is a part of Fetu Afahye, but more on that later. Orange Friday is a festival where the entire town wears orange. There is music played throughout the town and everyone dances as they march through town. It is a high-energy, all-day event, and is particular to the town of Cape Coast. For the weekend celebrations, there are numerous pop-up bars and restaurants to accommodate. In addition to immersing ourselves in local culture, we also discovered non-governmental organizations doing great work in Ghana.
