My father and I have been talking about using images that he photographed to create a positive and inspiring message within our community.
The photo is of the legendary Gil Scott Heron, a poet and revolutionary recording artist. Much of my generation know of his sound and lyrics used by Drake (take care) and otherartist, but my father taught me of this man’s message when I was very small. Although the original song says The Revolution Will Not Be Televised, the song brought attention on the need to show the racial disparity and injustice in America, a poetic contradiction. This shirt and message The Revolution Will Be Televised is to bring hope behind the action of showing what needs to be changed with clear direction and demands.
The shirt fits true to size.
Models are wearing an XL for an oversized look.
Size up two sizes if you want to mimic this style in the photo.
