The Loretta C. Manggrum Chorale, under the direction of Eric V. Oliver,
performs Sacred Music (Traditional, Classical, Hymns, Spirituals,
Gospel, Inspirational and Contemporary) composed by Dr. Loretta C.
Manggrum and other African American composers of Sacred music.  

Historian Lecturer Paul LaRue has identified over 170 names of the
original WWI Veterans buried in Union Baptist Cemetery. He has
researched the names, and matched them with their regiments and units
in WWI. These men were buried between 1919 - 1940. This is by no
means a complete list of WWI burials in the Union Baptist Cemetery, but
a fascinating look at the diverse nature of these Veterans' service and
sacrifice.
