Sonny wanted to help his community.

A resident of the San Francisco Fillmore District for over fifty years, Sonny came to BAVC to learn how to shoot and edit video and start producing his own show for public access television. Through his show, he helped bring the Midnight Basketball Program — designed to keep young people off the streets at night — to the Fillmore. Sonny's show airs weekly on SF Commons and Midnight Basketball is being expanded to neighborhoods across the city.

"You have no idea what a boost it is when someone comes up to you and says they saw you on television."

Help storytellers like Sonny make an impact.
