Roland Martin talks with Reverend Fred Luter, Jr. who has been elected as the first black President of the Southern Baptist Convention. The organization that has had the tarnished reputation of being a place for white supremecy, racism and segregation since the mid 1800s, made a decision to change their current course in history. Reverend Fred Luter, Jr. was unopposed in the decision for his election as president. Voted in by thousands of members, the 55-year-old pastor from New Orleans was the only one running for office of the organization.
