THE NEW OWNERS OF THE former Seaway National Bank of Chicago (Self-Help FCU) advertised via instagram a recent PBS documentary called Against All Odds: The Fight for a Black Middle Class by journalist Bob Herbert.

One of the reasons I started The Sixth Ward almost 10 years ago was to highlight among other communities in Chicago, the Chatham neighborhood. Chatham is often noted as a bastion of the Black middle class, unfortunately it's a neighborhood that on the downswing for the moment.

This is something I hope to blog about over at The Sixth Ward in the near future as soon as I finish watching.
