What is New Day in Race Relations?
New Day in Race Relations is a dedicated group of Anglo and African American pastors from throughout the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware whose mission together is to create a new day of spiritual unity and cultural understanding between blacks and whites through the shared Christian values of respect, trust, and love; modeling these values individually and corporately by overcoming ignorance and fear, by confronting issues of poverty and power, and by recognizing, engaging and celebrating our difference.

We Have a Dream:
On October 9, black believers and white believers gathered at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C., for a brief time of prayer and commitment.
They then gathered at Washington, D.C.'s First Rock Baptist Church for a vibrant celebration of each church's diversity and the commitment to promoting a new day in race relations.
