The Never-Ending Conversation

This video gives its viewers a look at two very different men in the city of Elyria, Ohio. Through the use of a voiceover, we learn that Ike Maxwell is the town’s source of pride. During his high school years he led his football team to many victories, especially during the 1971 season. Maxwell’s peak was in high school. He embodied the town of Elyria in spirit and identity. It is interesting to note that this how this video tells two different stories of race. As the video tells Leo Bullocks was instrumental in the one event that led to Maxwell’s downfall. Bullocks came from meager beginnings in Tennessee. He moved to Elyria because of a job and worked himself up to being a prominent council member. These men’s stories are at total opposite ends of the spectrum. Maxwell began with prominence and has fallen down on his luck. Bullocks came from nearly nothing in Tennessee and died a respected and powerful man.
