It’s Friday and that means I took a trip to my favorite book store, Halper’s, where the store owner recommended this song to us. The song “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” by Gil Scott-Heron is a powerful and thought-provoking piece of music that speaks to the political and social issues of its time. Released in 1971, the song is a commentary on the state of the world and the role of the media in shaping public perception. Definitely a cool song, enjoy!
