EDITOR'S NOTE: The following story is part of the the Feb. 13 observance of Race Relations Sunday in the Southern Baptist Convention.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)-An extensive collection of personal records from one of the Southern Baptist Convention's most influential black leaders is now open to researchers at the Southern Baptist Historical Library and Archives in Nashville, Tenn.

Emmanuel McCall, a member of the Home Mission Board staff from 1968 to 1991 and developer of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary's black studies program, has donated his personal papers to SBHLA, including more than 30 boxes of correspondence, audio-visual resources, sermons and other items.

The collection helps document the SBC’s transition in the 20th century from harboring notorious racial prejudice to becoming one of the most ethnically diverse denominations in America.
