A Gil Scott-Heron Day – the ultimate in poetic protest

Gil is wonderful. I miss him greatly. He put rebellion into words and created a whole new genre of poetry to Jazz that laid the roots for political Rap.

Gil was a master.

He tore politics to bits and in this age of Trump I’m sure he would have been right out there tearing into him and putting the black case, highlighting injustices and hypocrisy.

A sad loss. But we can read his words and listen to his music – and then go and build a better world based on justice, equality and an end to racism, sexism and misogyny!

This is a Gil Scott-Heron day!!  Enjoy!!
