See It, Whether You Know Who Billy Taylor Is or Not
Not being a football fan, I knew nothing about Billy Taylor's athletic feats or his tragic downfall, but his story informed and moved me. I was surprised to find myself crying as he reclaimed his life and went on to help other men in crisis. The film was expertly made, with still photos, archival footage, voice-over narration, on-camera interviews, and present-day footage of Detroit all blending smoothly to tell a remarkable tale. With support, people can "get back up," to borrow the name of Taylor's organization. After seeing "Perseverance," I felt better about the world and its possibilities. I recommend the movie to everyone, even those who don't like sports.
