Ukraine's President-elect Petro Poroshenko

This hour, we feature three international voices with Connecticut connections. We begin with a local professor, who recently returned from serving as an elections monitor in Ukraine. He tells us about his experience and talks about what lies ahead for the country and its people. 

We also talk with a Nigerian-American artist, who has found a way to create beautiful prints using just his fingers and an iPad. We learn as well the story of a Polish hero, and find out what a top Polish official in America thinks of Ukraine’s chances for success.

Visit Real Art Ways for more information about Olu Oguibe's exhibit, "iPad Prints."

Visit CCSU for more information about the Jan Karski exhibit.
