Sights and Sounds of Bayview

The Sights and Sounds of Bayview is a project of KALW and the San Francisco Arts Commission to tell the stories of the people who live, work, and have a positive impact on San Francisco's Bayview neighborhood. Radio producers and photographers documented the stories in sound and imagery.

On September 19, 2013, the stories were presented live on stage at the historic Bayview Opera House in front of an audience of local community members and newcomers to the neighborhood.
