afropunk mixtape #056: body poltics

August 5, 2019
105 Picks

White supremacy, cis-hetero patriarchy, and capitalism are all systems that at their cores politicize bodies. For many of us, our bodies are politicized ten times before we even get out of bed. This month, we lift up the artists whose work explores body politics, from sexuality to police violence, from labor to colorism, and everything in between. AFROPUNK Mixtape #056 features songs from legends like Betty Davis, Angelo Moore, and Saul Williams, and rising stars like Rico Nasty and HXLT, and festival faves Unlocking the Truth.
