I was front and center to experience the iconic Afropunk festival debut to the Motherland.
Melanated skin, afros that touch the sky, perfect curves and a non stop celebration of our culture!
What is "Afropunk?"
Afro: as in, born of African spirit and heritage; see also black (not always), see also rhythm and color, see also other, see also underdog.
Punk: as in, rebel, opposing the simple route, imbued with a DIY ethic, looking forward with simplicity, rawness and open curiosity; see also other, see also underdog.
AFROPUNK is defining culture by the collective creative actions of the individual and the group. It is a safe place, a blank space to freak out in, to construct a new reality, to live your life as you see fit, while making sense of the world around you. via: Afropunkwebsite
