'Peace in the Park' event held on South Side

August 26, 2011 (CHICAGO)

A similiar Peace in the Park event was held in Cole Park in the Chatham neighborhood last year a few months after Wortham was killed in a robbery attempt. He was a big supporter of the park and the neighborhood.

Organizers say camping out at Cole Park shows kids that it's a safe place . More than 100 people camped out there during last year's event.
