In 1992 when there was excessive racial tension in the city of Winston-Salem, NC, three clergy, two African American and one Caucasian, sat down for lunch and to discuss what they could do to lessen racial tension in their city. Twenty years later, they celebrated the amazing story of what began that day when they had lunch. They formed the Presbyterian Inter-Racial Dialogue (PIRD), which for twenty years creatively led their congregations in a journey not only of racial reconciliation but also of interfaith dialogue. Their communities were prepared when 9/11 occurred to reach out to their Muslim neighbors.

They included Muslim, Christian, and Jewish neighbors in the first interfaith, interracial Habitat build in the world. Their story, as told in Let’s Have Lunch: Conversation, Race and Community, is a story of what ordinary individuals can accomplish when they agree to work together.
