16: The Catholic Ghettos, and a Tree Grows in Brooklyn
In the first episode of our four-part series on the Catholic Subculture, we dive into the world of the poor immigrant communities in urban hotspots, using Betty Smith's classic "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" as our guide. We discuss the physical poverty, living and working conditions, and how Catholics used their suffering as a means of creating intentional, strong immigrant subcultures.
