Back of the Yards residents drum for peace

November 19, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) — A Native American tradition is sparking hope in Chicago’s Back of the Yards neighborhood.

The area is a community facing gangs, guns and violence, but with the help of a Catholic priest, peace is the message this week.

“We want to walk for peace and justice,” one person said.

Dozens gather to join in the efforts.
