LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- When the Southern Baptist Convention holds it's annual meeting next month in New Orleans, it could do something it has never done before - elect an African American president.
The SBC is the country's largest protestant denomination with more than 16-million members.
While more ethnic churches are joining the convention, it's 40,000 churches are predominately white.
In a special assignment report Monday night, WDRB's Lawrence Smith looks at the Southern Baptists struggles with race issues, and what it means for the SBC to elect its first black president.
"I guess I would equate it to President Obama being elected President of the United States. I never thought I would see that in my lifetime. I'm delighted that it has occurred in both instances."
Sunday night at 10, the Southern Baptist Convention on the verge of history and what it means for the future.
