Prof. Senderovich's article about Seattle's Lenin statue

Submitted by Chris Dawson-Ripley on

Assistant Professor Sasha Senderovich has written an article in the local paper "The Stranger" about the iconic statue of Lenin located in the Seattle neighborhood of Fremont. This is a fascinating read that compares what it was like growing up in Russia, where Lenin was revered, to the irreverant way the statue is treated here in Seattle.  The article also addresses the recent controversy in which some people have compared this statue to the Confederate Monuments that have been in the news lately.  Please do yourself a favor and take a moment to read it.
