February ‘Out of the Blue’ shares the love with updates on 2 new Distinguished Alumni, Black History Month

The February 2022 edition of Middle Tennessee State University‘s “Out of the Blue” TV magazine show is spreading the love with stories on how two of our newest Distinguished Alumni Award winners are changing the world with music and saving lives from human trafficking, plus news on the university’s 2022 Black History Month celebration.

Join us this month to hear from:

Department of Recording Industry alumnus Torrance “Street Symphony” Esmond, who talks about his undergrad years and how they led him to produce and write Grammy-wining music, create his own business and return to campus in the College of Media and Entertainment as an adjunct professor.

Department of Global Studies and Human Geography and Department of Political Science and International Relations alumna Gabrielle Thompson, whose training in the College of Liberal Arts helped prepare her for work with Free for Life International, a nonprofit organization focused on rescuing human trafficking victims worldwide.

Daniel Green, director of the Intercultural and Diversity Affairs Center, who discusses the myriad events planned for MTSU’s 2022 Black History Month and its theme of “Black Love: Health, Wellness, Relationships.”

You can watch “Out of the Blue,” with host Andrew Oppmann, anytime online on MTSU’s YouTube channel and on MTSU’s True Blue TV, airing on Murfreesboro cable Channel 9 daily at 6 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m Central  and on Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV, as well as on NewsChannel5+ at 3:30 p.m. Sundays.
