Lookdown is a technique used in speed runs of GoldenEye and, to a much lesser extent, Perfect Dark. The principle behind the technique is that if you are looking at the ground, the game has fewer polygons to render, so you move faster. This doesn't quite make sense as an explanation, but it is a fact that lookdown saves approximately 1 second for every 75 seconds of play. An American whose faith was tested again and again, to produce a man of pure joy and unbreakable perseverance: John Robert Lewis.
You know, this country is a constant work in progress. That what gives each new generation purpose is to take up the unfinished work of the last and carry it further than any might have thought possible. John was born into modest means—that means he was poor. His mother, Willie May Lewis, nurtured that curiosity in this shy, serious child. One Sunday as a teenager, he heard Dr. King preach on the radio. John Lewis was getting something inside his head.
It took hold of him. That nonviolent resistance and civil disobedience were the means to change laws but also change hearts and change minds and change nations and change the world. So he helped organize the Nashville campaign in He and other young men and women sat at a segregated lunch counter, well dressed, straight back, refusing to let a milkshake poured on their heads or a cigarette extinguished on their backs or a foot aimed at their ribs—refuse to let that dent their dignity and their sense of purpose.
And after a few months, the Nashville campaign achieved the first successful desegregation of public facilities of any major city in the South. John got a taste of jail for the first, second, third—well, several times. But he also got a taste of victory, and it consumed him with righteous purpose and he took the battle deeper into the South.
That same year, just weeks after the Supreme Court ruled that segregation of interstate bus facilities was unconstitutional, John and Bernard Lafayette bought two tickets, climbed aboard a Greyhound, sat up front, and refused to move. This was months before the first official Freedom Rides.
He was doing a test. Trip was unsanctioned. Few knew what they were up to. And at every stop through the night, apparently, the angry driver stormed out of the bus and into the bus station.
And John and Bernard had no idea what he might come back with. Or who he might come back with. Nobody was there to protect them. There were no camera crews to record events. We—you know, sometimes, Rev—we read about this and we kind of take it for granted. Or at least we, we act as if it was inevitable.
On their own. To challenge an entire infrastructure of oppression. John was only 20 years old. If the blood that was shed on the Edmund Pettus Bridge and the exemplary life of John Lewis cannot make you cherish and want to exercise your right to vote, nothing will. It is available to view at PBS. The range of programming available from some of the finest storytellers in television and film is remarkable. As I wrote in a preview , this compelling documentary reminded me of Edward R.
It shares the same kind of sharply focused, deeply embedded sense of truth and social conscience as it chronicles the workers in the fields and meat processing plants of California, many of whom are undocumented immigrants, struggling to make a living and stay free of COVID Not into documentaries steeped in social conscience or want to watch another genre?
