Paul Ransom Digital Podium | Instruments of Change featuring Ruth Greenfield

Panelists: Ruth Greenfield, Charles Greenfield ’68, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders ’70, Wendell Graham ’74

The documentary, Instruments of Change, chronicles the efforts of Ruth Greenfield to bring music, dance, and art to students of all backgrounds at the Fine Arts Conservatory she founded and operated in Liberty City in the 1950s, defying the segregation practices at the time. Ruth’s effort to use the arts to uplift and unite children reverberated throughout Miami for decades, and touched the lives of her sons Charles Greenfield '68 and Timothy Greenfield-Sanders ’70, as well as retired judge Wendell Graham ’74 – a student at the conservatory who later became the first Black student at Ransom School. Head of School Penny Townsend will lead a conversation with this illustrious group. Don’t miss this event! You may watch the documentary here.
