Black History Month in spotlight on ‘MTSU On the Record’
MURFREESBORO — The next edition of the ‘MTSU On the Record’ radio program will preview MTSU’s annual celebration of Black History Month.
Host Gina Logue’s interview with Vincent Windrow, director of the MTSU Intercultural and Diversity Center and chair of the Black History Month Committee, will air at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 28, and 8 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 3, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and wmot.org).
The theme of this year’s observance is “At the Crossroads of Freedom and Equality: The Emancipation Proclamation and the March on Washington.”
This year marks the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, President Abraham Lincoln’s executive order proclaiming all blacks enslaved in the Confederate states to be free.
It also marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom spearheaded by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It was at this march on the Washington, D.C., mall where King delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
