From the artist's Instagram: "“The Revolution will not be Televised”
You will not be able to stay home.
You will not be able to plug in.
The revolution will not come to you.

This piece was inspired by the poet and musician Gill-Scott Heron.

The news is a curated platform, designed to tell a story. What is being reported, what you are hearing and watching is not “the Revolution.”

[The first change that takes place is in your mind. You have to change your mind before you change the way you live and the way you move. The thing that’s going to change people is something that nobody will ever be able to capture on film. It’s just something that you see and you’ll think, "Oh I’m on the wrong page," or “I’m on the right page but the wrong note. And I’ve got to get in sync with everyone else to find out what’s happening in this country."]
- Gill-Scott Heron" Posted on July 1, 2020.
