This chapter discusses the issue of race in the Southern Baptist community. Southern Baptist churches are rarely fully integrated, and women of color who participate in predominantly white congregations often acculturate to the prevailing norms in the church. However, the Southern Baptist Convention professes to have had a conversion experience around race. Many of the participants have even begun to examine the impact of racism in their lives, although some have admitted that examining their unaware or unintentional racism is very difficult for white people.

Keywords: race; Southern Baptist; community; churches; norms; Southern Baptist Convention; color; racism; unintentional racism
