When Gil Scott-Heron released The Revolution Will Not Be Televised in 1970, he had some home truths to tell about a world of prejudice, imbalance, corruption and apathy. Today things aren’t much different. While the players may have changed, the underlying problems remain – and some have become more ingrained. Our reboot pays homage to the song’s original creator, while serving as a reminder that the fight for a fairer society continues. The lyrics, music and video were produced by young people at Exposure to coincide with the launch of Journey to Justice, an organisation honouring those struggling to secure human rights.
“People will not care who Kim Kardashian’s next on screen hump will be. Because the 99% will be in the street looking for a brighter day.” – Man in the Mask
