AFROPUNK

... the other Black experience


MTV News recently aired a piece and produced web content about the Afro-Punk Movement.

Afro-Punk Scene (...) Explodes Into A Multi-Genre Movement.
Even Bad Boy artist Janelle Monae is affiliated with the movement.

By Daniela Capistrano

"(...)The fundamental contradiction of black kids feeling left out of rock — which from its very beginning was based on black music — has played a large role in the creation of Afro-Punk. And while there have been many black artists who have been embraced by white rock fans, from Little Richard to Sly and the Family Stone to the Bad Brains, the Afro-Punk movement has found fans bonding and creating communities, organizing shows and shooting films in a whole new way.
Afro-Punk has gone from the name of a message board to a movement in less than five years — and the scene just keeps growing."
