WASHINGTON -- Black conservatives remember it as the "Fairmont Conference." The weekend meeting in San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel in December 1980 was a watershed event for black conservatism -- no similar meeting had occurred before, and none has since.Among the 100 to 125 participants was a young Senate aide named Clarence Thomas, who is currently President Bush's controversial nominee for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court.Since the days of Franklin D. Roosevelt, black conservatives have been a Republican minority amid a majority of liberal-to-moderate Democrats in the national black community.

When Arnold Hayes was a Baltimore school teacher in 1972, he purchased a home in the city where he worked. But there was nothing city about his new neighborhood of Fairmount. Hayes found open spaces and wooded areas within the urban setting. And Hayes, who is now president of the Fairmount Community Association, knew he was home in what he fondly calls his country retreat. Fairmount is a five-street southwest Baltimore neighborhood comprising Chelsea Road, Nortonia Road, Chesholm Road and Winterbourne Road and backing up to the Gwynns Falls Trail.

It's June 26, 1988, and the members of Christian Faith Tabernacle Church have gathered for their annual "Pastor Appreciation Day." From the outside, the humble building in Middle River with its hand-painted sign and barren, gravelly lot doesn't seem like much.But inside, the church is vibrating with music and laughter and good feelings. The members are putting on a "This is Your Life" kind of show for their pastor, the man many of them had followed out the door of a secure, established church for one with nothing -- neither building nor land nor denominational ties -- except sheer faith.
