Abstract:

This 2001 performance at the New Morning club in Paris showcases one of the greatest singers in the soul tradition, Gil Scott-Heron. Inspired by writer Langston Hughes, one of the driving forces behind the Afrocentrism of the 1960s, Scott-Heron was the first to put his texts to music. He tried his hand at the keyboard in rock groups and published The Nigger Factory. His music and lyrics, part poetic, part political, denouncing the repressive violence exerted upon African-Americans in the U.S., soon made him the cult hero of radical rap and hip-hop musicians worldwide. This film offers a fine illustration of the rebellious storyteller's craft.
