The year is 1969, and poet and musician Gil Scott Heron introduces Julio Benson to Doc, an infamous and enigmatic figure in the Black power movement. Julio interviews Doc on his New York City public access television show, Revolt, and as the interview unfolds, Julio quickly finds Doc’s claim that he is ‘a time traveler’ impossible to discredit. This lost episode of Revolt was recently found and made public for the first time. It is Doc’s message in a bottle, his last chance to save the world.
