I wasn’t able to attend AFROPUNK, which took place from 23 – 24 May, but I was able to live vicariously through some good friends of mine.
For those of you who might not know what AFROPUNK Festival is (is that even possible?), know that it celebrated its tenth year of live music, art and good peoples last year in Brooklyn. You can expect open-minded, non-conforming and unconventional people and all that comes with them. The festival stages are filled with alternative music artists and the atmosphere is all about an exchange of thought and positivity. Truly an uplifting experience that you have the opportunity to experience all over the US and now in Paris too. For more details check out the official AFROPUNK website.
Here is an impromptu conversation that my friends had with some folks concerning living as Black Americans in Europe. Some people might want to take notes!
