Chatham residents reject violence in community

Jahmal Cole and his wife have been living in Chicago’s Chatham neighborhood for six years now. At the time, the Coles had heard very little about the violence, but since they moved into their home in 2008, the house has been burglarized twice and the ring of gunshots is all too common.
