AFROPUNK

I love everything that Afropunk stands for. Art. Culture. Music. Justice. Freedom. Creativity. Individuality. I could go on and on. August 22 and 23rd the Afropunk fest was held in NYC (The line up included Lauryn Hill, Grace Jones, Lenny Kravitz, Kelis, and Danny Brown just to name a few). The following street style images are from then. Afropunk is also being held in Atlanta October 3rd and 4th (my birthday weekend!), I hope by the grace of God I can go. I so want to be immersed in this community.

Atlanta’s Line Up

“Originating with the 2003 documentary that highlighted a Black presence in the American punk scene, it is a platform for the alternative and experimental. Remaining at the core of its mission are the punk principles of DIY aesthetics, radical thought and social non-conformity. AFROPUNK is a voice for the unwritten, unwelcome and unheard-of, redefining the urban experience.” – Afropunk.com
