I read your column in the Journal [Why I’m proud to be from Oak Park, Ken Trainor, Viewpoints, May 16] and thought you would appreciate this video, featuring former Baird & Warner president John W. Baird.

John W. Baird was one of the few prominent people in real estate who took a stand for fair housing in Chicago. His actions are remembered today, 50 years after the Fair Housing Act, in this new video. 

Here’s the link to the video:
