Salt Lake City, UT – Utah's Greek Community is celebrating the centennial of the Greek Orthodox Church of Greater Salt Lake City. Doug Fabrizio is joined by Manoli Sargetakis, historian Constantine Skedros, and Craig Miller of the Utah Arts Council Folk Arts Program. We'll look at the history of this unique community, and at how ethnicity is preserved in the "melting-pot" of America.
