The share of Black Americans who do not identify with any religion is increasing, as is true among Americans overall. Still, the vast majority of religiously unaffiliated Black Americans believe in God and about half pray regularly, although few attend religious services, according to a recent survey.

Nine-in-ten Black “nones” – people who describe their religious identity as atheist, agnostic, or nothing in particular – believe in God or another higher power, according to the survey. Among religiously affiliated Black Americans, those who adhere to Christian and non-Christian faiths, 99% believe in God.
