'Perseverance' at Lake Street Church

The film “Perseverance, the Story of Dr. Billy Taylor” by local filmmaker Bob Hercules, will be screened at 8 p.m. on May 15 at Lake Street Church, 607 Lake St.

No college athlete seemed more assured of a brilliant future than Billy Taylor when he starred as Michigan’s running back under legendary coach Bo Schembechler. But two family tragedies later, Billy Taylor’s life began a downward spiral that led to alcohol, drugs, prison and shame, leaving him a derelict on the streets of Detroit until a mysterious voice called his name.

Co-directed by Evanston filmmaker Bob Hercules and Dan Chace, “Perseverance” is the story of a man’s remarkable resurrection, and of his mission to help others whose lives have similarly hit bottom.

The film is presented by Percolator Films in collaboration with Lake Street Church, the McGaw Y and Hilda’s Place/Connections for the Homeless. 

Mr. Hercules and Dr. Taylor will attend the screening. The $10 suggested donation will support homeless services at Hilda’s Place.
