Students from MTSU’s electronic media communication program worked behind-the-scenes at the Oct. 28 “Freedom Sings” concerts at Nashville’s famous Bluebird Cafe.
Students deployed the college’s $1.4 million mobile video production lab, managed social media content, helped with public relations and covered the 15th anniversary event for MTSU’s student media outlets.
Freedom Sings, the signature program of the First Amendment Center, features prominent recording artists playing music that has been banned, censored or has sounded a call for social change. It was launched at the Bluebird in 1999 and has toured U.S. college campuses since then, supplemented by CDs, a documentary and teachers’ guide.
