Ruth Shack Equal Rights Champion and Community Leader

She’s Ruth Shack, winner of the 2016 “Community Champion Award.” In the early 1970s—and in then “Dade” County--she sponsored an initiative for gay rights which sparked a national controversy. But there’s so much more, especially in the world of civic philanthropy and the arts. We’ll explore more . . . Topical Currents Wednesday at 1pm.
