Gil-Scott Heron

© Chuck Stewart

Pieces of Man is the story of a brilliant writer and recording artist who used his music to awaken public thinking and invite activism on a range of social issues from gun control to drug addiction to government corruption and is swiftly appointed the people’s voice. As communities worldwide begin to depend on his music for the much needed social critique, Scott-Heron dismisses his own warnings about drug addiction and meets a tragic fall, leaving his disbelieving fans to question the role of today’s drug laws in the loss of valuable voices.
