Black Excellence, eye contact 

An example of Black Excellence.

Jerry Lawson designed the Fairchild Channel F, the first cartridge-based video game system, allowing additional games to be sold separately from the console itself and creating the standard distribution model for console gaming for nearly two decades.

One of the most significant figures in the history of video games.

Back in college, I had to take a history course and because the gods smiled on me, they offered a course called Social History of Digital Gaming. I remember having no idea who this guy was when I read the syllabus and wondered why there was a whole module on him.
