The Baptist Center for Ethics produced a new DVD resource entitled Beneath the Skin: Baptists and Racism. This new video considers past mistakes and future challenges regarding racial unity and social justice. From the trans-Atlantic slave trade to the current immigration debate, Beneath the Skin peels back prejudices and confronts them with biblical mandates. Interviewees come from nearly a dozen states and represent the best in Baptist life, including: preacher and activist Will Campbell, Aidsand Wright-Riggins of American Baptist Churches USA, and Javier Elizondo of Baptist University of the Americas. The Baptist General Convention of Missouri is proud to have been one of the organizations providing funding for this project.
