The Education of Sonny Carson


From adolence to the brink of adulthood, “Education” paints an autobiographical portrait of Sonny Carson as he tries to escape the circumstances of his birth. From a sentence in juvinielle detention to joining the Lords, the film captures the interior life of people who often are only relegated to cautionary tales. Based on the best-selling novel of the same name, the often sampled film has been adored by movie and hip hop fans alike. With Rony Clanton, Don Gordon, Joyce Walker, Paul Benjamin, Thomas Hicks, and Mary Alice.
