You were in a for a big treat if you attended Afropunk Festival in Brooklyn, NYC this past week. This unique event is designed as a “safe space” by its creators and organizers. There are admirable ground rules No Sexism. No Racism. No Ableism. No Ageism … These laws were abided by as festival goers of all races, ages, genders, and sizes were in attendance.
Grace Jones, Ms. Lauren Hill, Suicidal Tendencies, Kelis, and Letlive all put on one fantastic day of performances on day 1 at Afropunk Festival.
“Maybe I should take off my shoes and go totally tribal,” Grace Jones said. Jones, 67, was Saturday’s headliner and that she did. If you’ve been skipping out on social media lately, then you must check out all the Instagram photos and videos of Jones performing bare-breasted and covered in body paint.
