Embracing Diversity on 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.
