MyBlockMyHoodMyCity: "K-Town" North Lawndale

[VIDEO] Jahmal Cole visits the west side again with a visit to the North Lawndale neighborhood. He speaks with former county board President Bobbie Steele, lead attorney at Lawndale Christian Legal Center Cliff Nellis, and Pastor Phil Jackson of the Firehouse Community Art Center.

BTW, Cole meets with Steele at an establishment called the Green Tomato Cafe. If only they were ready to expand to our part of the city. Steele breaks down why a place such as a cafe - what she terms a meeting place for everyone - is truly necessary in North Lawndale.

This episode is about 9 minutes. Enjoy.
