African-American Baptists have a long history of missions involvement, dating to 1821 when, former slaves, Lott Cary and Collin Teague went as missionaries to West Africa. They and their families were sponsored by the African Baptist Missionary Society.
When the Southern Baptist Convention formed in 1845, African-American missionary John Day, already on the field in Liberia, chose to come under sponsorship of the new Foreign (now International) Mission Board. Others followed.
Today, African Americans are stepping up to join God on mission, not just in Africa, but in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
