FORT MYERS, Fla.- Bennett Williams, III is a man with a camera and a big vision.
"When local events take place that show the beauty and the true sense of community that Dunbar has, it's often times never covered," he said.
So he created Dunbar TV and recruited reporters to hit the streets of Dunbar to show the positive stories.
"We all do some of everything. From filming, shooting and reporting," he said.
You can view their work on Facebook by typing in Dunbartv, with no spaces into the search page. Williams plans to expand to Youtube and create a website for Dunbar TV. He says imagery is power, especially in a community where murder and crime can overshadow the good people are doing.
"The way you see yourself will affect how you feel about yourself," said Williams. Williams says Dunbar TV provides the public something that main stream media can't.
"It's not their job to inspire us. It's just their job to inform us. With Dunbar TV, our job is to inform and inspire," he said.
So far thousands of people have viewed the page and they hope to get sponsorships from local businesses to help Dunbar TV expand.
"We hope Dunbar TV eventually becomes a large enough venue where people can actually watch things that are only positive and inspiring in the community as well as become a force in the community," said Williams.
