AFROPUNK has become my new craze. I am so excited!!!!
So let’s start at what seems to be the biggest “association” with AFROPUNK, The Festivals!
The first festival hit Brooklyn in 2005, to support a documentary entitled Afro punk. I haven’t seen the documentary yet, but I will hunt it down and report back.
The festival however has made its way to Atlanta, Paris, London, South Africa and Johannesburg!
I mention the festival first, because it is the most associated with the word AFROPUNK, HOWEVER I want to get it out of the way, so I can really begin to look past it.
I didn’t get excited about AFROPUNK because of the festivals, there is a world changing message behind this concept! And I’m going to find it, even if I have to create it myself!
