VIDEO: Chatham, a haven for working-class families

Below is a three part series of state Rep. Marlow Colvin talking about the Chatham neighborhood. He describes Chatham as a haven for working-class families. He does mention that the professionals lived with the more blue collar people. For example, he mentions that his father was a union carpenter. Hat-tip YoChicago.

In any event the first one introduces the viewer to Rep. Colvin and the Chatham community. The second video basically gives us an overview of what the Chatham community values such as education, employment, as well as politics. The final one is about what other communities can learn from Chatham.

I would like to find out more about the person who uploaded these videos onto YouTube Jason Broadus. How did he get into contact with Rep. Colvin and why was he interested in Chatham.
