The Butler teaches us that the striving for inclusion and equity is still hard fought struggle that persists.  Jobs offers some do not fit the normalized view pointing to the idiom that for some the “square peg in round hole” applies.  Both movies convey that perspectives shaped their actions.  They both were molded by their ideals and driven to shape a new world. The Butler, Cecil Gaines saw a world of privileged from the White House despite his own racism and oppression. Jobs saw privileged and yet, socially inept creating a form of personal exclusion despite his power.

The Butler and Jobs shed light that depending on position in life we can be in the midst of an event but see it so differently – the peg. Positionality and perspective are the mantle in which we place our values and are guided to choices. Both men made exceptional life choices that changed our world within their position.
The most profound statement in the Butler was shared by Gaines referencing the concentration camps and yet, the camps of slavery that lasted 200 years are not considered.
The most profound statement in Jobs shared by Jobs walking down the hall of Apple is in the acceptance that we are unique and to own that we can begin to make difference.
Both The Butler and Jobs can teach us:
1. Humanity is delivered differently and that there is not one method to humaness.
2. Perspective is a powerful platform that is the lens of one’s world.
3. The relevance of history in the present guides are decisions.
4. How one changes the world can be powerful achieved in public and in private yet, both are impactful.
