The New Hamtramck -- and the Looming Question

When I was growing up in southeastern Michigan, Hamtramck was the Polish-American stronghold. It must have been one of the most Polish cities outside of Poland. We were all kind of proud of it. It was a bit exotic. You went there for...Show More Summary

Inside Higher Education sets the stage: In 1934, Ann Rice O’Hanlon painted a fresco — then the largest one ever painted by a woman — in the University of Kentucky’s Memorial Hall.
