Baptists Poised to Make History

Southern Baptists could soon have its first Black leader. Fred (Chip) Luther says he will seek to become president of the denomination. Baptist leaders says the New Orleans pastor is the easy favorite. Church representatives will meet in his city during June to make a decision, when Georgia's Bryant Wright finished his second one-year term. Luther already made history by becoming the convention's first African-American vice president. At the moment, Luther has no other competition for the post.
