United in Praise 50th Anniversary Celebration Concert
United in Praise, formerly the Modern Black Mass Choir, will perform a concert as part of Duke University's nine-month, university-wide commemoration to highlight the 50th anniversary of integration.
The group consists of undergraduate and graduate students at Duke who profess the Christian faith.
The choir is one of the oldest student groups on the campus. During the mid-sixties, a time when Duke did not openly embrace its cultural and ethnic diversity, the Modern Black Mass Choir was organized in a local church for Duke’s black students. In 1972, the choir was reorganized as a Duke University student group.
