Songs for The Movement: “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”
The Songs for the Movement section of N.A.H. houses selected protest songs for social justice from the past and the present.
I’m trying to build a list here, and will update this category periodically, but feel free to share any suggestions you may have in the comments or via email.
Today’s entry in Songs for the Movement is “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” by Gil Scott Heron. The submission came from an N.A.H. reader who said:
“I nominate Gil Scott Heron’s “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” for your list – because it is still NOT being televised, but it’s being shared in a new way that bypasses traditional media.”
