Reflections on the sacrifices that made America a more inclusive society form the focal point of this year’s Black History Month celebration at MTSU.
Documentaries, speeches, sing-a-longs and other activities are on tap under the theme of “Civil Rights in America,” said Black History Month Committee co-chairs Vincent Windrow, interim assistant vice provost for student success, and Jonell Hinsey, interim director of the Intercultural and Diversity Affairs Center.
The forecast calls for “An Oriental Monsoon” at MTSU as a powerful, swirling display of light and sound heads for Murfreesboro.
“An Oriental Monsoon,” a theatrical production by faculty and students of China’s Hangzhou Normal University, is scheduled for 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6, in Tucker Theatre on the MTSU campus. The event is free and open to the public.
The simplicity and elegance of the Baldwin Photographic Gallery’s new home at MTSU are impressing students, alumni and university supporters as well as the arts community.
Reopening Monday in a bright, airy space on the second-floor atrium of the Bragg Mass Communication Building on campus, the Baldwin Gallery’s inaugural exhibit by photographic artists Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor drew appreciative crowds. A VIP preview and reception on Sunday had similar responses.
