Gil Scott-Heron's The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

The song's title was originally a popular slogan among the 1960s Black Power movements in the United States. And over 50 years later how true that is. The revolution(s) have been live streamed to the internet, organized via the internet, and TV is often just trying to keep up. I've seen things on Twitter that don't show up in the news til hours later.

This Youtuber made a video with the song using protest images from Justice for George Floyd.
