The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

The other day I was thinking about some projects that been in the back of my mind for a while and I thought about an off and on project to update a rap piece I had heard 30 or 40 years ago before rap became Rap.  It’s a jazz poem by Gil Scott-Heron entitled “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.”  At the time, it was performed in smokey jazz clubs, coffee houses and anywhere Scott-Heron could find people willing to listen.  Wiki says it in detail here.  The poem says a lot about society then and I think it can be made relevant  for today.  You can view my efforts at “The Revolution Will Not be Televised”  and the annotated verse pages.
