Yet another badass video recap of what went down at this year’s AFROPUNK Festival in Brooklyn
Check out Browntourage’s reel.
Featuring Unlocking The Truth, Wicked Wisdom, Death, Mykki Blanco, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Boots Riley, Jean Grae and YOU, the amazing crowd.
Browntourage says: “We went to Afropunk not really knowing we’d end up in a paradise rampant with beautiful people of color showcasing artistry both on the fringe and epicenter of cross-generational culture.
We met with a bunch of up-and-coming folks who were genuinely down to share their stories and support. It was a really humbling experience recontextualizing the Browntourage lifestyle in a space rich with history and alignment with our values. Afropunk is a place for people to participate and revel in success via the path less travelled, which is what we try to pay homage to through our Alternative Role-Model series.
It all made sense being there- everything our senses took in was delicious, from the food to the knowledge bombs shared with strangers to the moshing and the turn-up hyphy trains. Here’s a highlight reel for those who missed it or need to re-live it!”
