AfroPunk : Brooklyn
So INFASHUATED was an attendee of Afro punk this year. After many years of over heard conversations and people acquiescing about their attendance, I though it only right to get to an Afro Punk. I thoroughly enjoyed the eclectic mix of people.
The name Afro Punk alludes to black punk culture which is typically typecast as black attire, tattoos, pierced body parts, mohawks, and a hate for authoritative figures and politics.Yet Afro Punks, punks are so much more. Though some of my characteristics were some what true there was certainly an altruistic ora at this year festival . During Danny Brown‘s epic performance of “Blunt After Blunt“, I began to look around at the diverse gathering with a smile. It was in this moment that I realized the name Afro punk is not meant as a definitive title but yet a all inclusive one. Every person nodding their head in unison. If we could only be this unified about other topics that threaten human rights and freedom.
Music has the capability to break all barriers of inequality weather racial or economical. Brooklyn’s Afro Punk festival serves as a place where all fashionable attire is appreciated. From natural hair to totally shaved heads, each women appeared with a sensibility of beauty and confidence.
