Before It Was Them, Now It’s Us

Directed by Gabrielle Lurie, Manjula Varghese

When the coronavirus hit San Francisco’s Bayview, it attacked the heart of the historically black neighborhood: the elders. The virus has exploited a precious sense of community in neighborhoods underserved by health care, including the Bayview. The neighborhood’s strength lies in how  generations have stuck together, at parties, churches and funerals. Now, those close ties have become a vulnerability. Bayview residents share how COVID-19 has affected their lives.
