Solution Sessions

afropunk solution sessions: season 2, episode 1

November 13, 2019

You’re reading this on — but what do you REALLY know about AFROPUNK? On  episode one OF AFROPUNK Solution Sessions podcast’s second season, we’re taking it back to where it all began. We speak to AFROPUNK’s co-founder and CEO Matthew Morgan, and to Jocelyn Cooper, about how the AFROPUNK movement was born, the ethos of Black punk, and why being Black means making a way where there was none.

Some of the solution we dig into include:

  • Tapping into your punk nature and remember that we make room even when it seems like there isn’t any for us
  • Creating platforms that enable forward movement
  • Acting on the ideas you really believe will make change, even when it seems really big
  • And saying screw it to waiting for permission to do something
