Photo Diary: These Moments Captured The True Essence Of AfroPunk


If you ask anyone filing into the gated enclave of Downtown Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park for AfroPunk Festival, they’ll tell you it’s a vibe. Yes, the annual music festival boasts top tier performances at a lower price point, but its most attractive element is the culture.

That celebration of blackness, the culture that surrounds it and stems from it, freeness, individuality, art, style, creativity is the core of AfroPunk’s appeal and steady allegiance from repeat attendees. For now, it’s in its own league.
