Embracing Diversity on Franklin Avenue

Hartford’s Historic Franklin Avenue

“Common Ground” is the headline of a story about  Hartford’s historic South End neighborhood embracing diversity — diversity of culture, diversity of religion. It’s about this long-time Italian-American neighborhood welcoming Bosnians who fled “a bloody civil war,” and who now, as Bosnian-Americans, are renovating their mosque, the Bosnian American Islamic Center.

Take a moment to read Hartford Courant reporter Vinny Vella’s story published February 18, 2016.
