MHA Hosts Filmmaker Chris Johnson, Mississippi Premier Screening of "A Better Life"

On November 19, the Mississippi Humanist Association (MHA) hosted filmmaker Chris Johnson and the Mississippi premier of the documentary, A Better Life: An Exploration of Joy and Meaning in a World Without God.

After a brief introduction by Chris, the film was screened and discussed. A Better Life focuses on what humanists and atheists believe in, and the values they live by everyday. A very positive and affirming film, A Better Life shows how atheists and humanists such as Matt Dillahunty, Julia Sweeney, and A.C Grayling derive meaning and joy in their lives.

The MHA welcomed lots of new faces at this event, and we look forward to hosting events such as this in the future. The MHA thanks Dr. Patrick Hopkins and Millsaps College for hosting this event,  MHA members Dr. Peter and Arelys Hercules, and all of the MHA members for helping to make this event a success.

If you would like to support humanism in Mississippi, please join the MHA or make a donation, so we can keep hosting events such as this one. If you would like more information about Chris Johnson, his book, A Better Life: 100 Atheists Speak Out on Joy & Meaning in a World Without God, or the film, please visit Chris' website at
