Chatham, a haven for working-class families

In a 3-part video interview, State Rep Marlow Colvin provides a great overview of Chatham, the South Side community where he grew up. In the second part of the interview, above, Colvin outlines the factors that make Chatham special.

Part one is a brief introduction to Chatham, and the third part suggests what other communities can learn from Chatham.

You’ll find an update on the Chatham housing market at the informative Sixth Ward blog. Medill Reports has an interview with Jahmal Cole, who is working on a video documentary of Chatham.

You can see a bit more of Chatham on this YoChicago playlist at YouTube, and see photos of Chatham at our neighborhood page.
