[PHOTOS] AfroPunk Fest: A Creative Paradise, A Freedom Voyage
If there's one thing that I don't get tired of is celebrating, it is black beauty. My Afro-Latina spirit is always on 100 as I educate family and friends on music, culture history and whatever else I come across on this journey. This past weekend I celebrated black beauty at the 11th Annual AfroPunk Festival at the Commodore Barry Park in Brooklyn, N.Y. From black icons like Lenny Kravitz and Grace Jones to newcomers like Lion Babe, SZA, Kaytranada and Thundercat, the line up was one to remember. People from all genders, races, and definitions came together as their creative selves for the beautiful two-day celebration. Some parents even brought their children along with them, such a beautiful sight. The live art, and booths on non-for profit organizations that bring awareness to black issues was the icing on the cake.
Afro Punk. No sexism. No racism. No ableism. No homophobia. No fatphobia. No transphobia. No hatefulness.
