Scenes from Afropunk 2008

I headed over to BAM to catch a screening of Afropunk founder James Spooner’s  new film "White Lies, Black Sheep".  Good stuff.  Stay tuned for a video interview with James later this week.  In the meantime, here are some of the sights.

    Hey Rob;

    I conducted an Interview with James and Ayinde last year at the Toronto International Film Festival. Here is the link: http://www.afrotoronto.com/CMS/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=87&Itemid=1&ed=1

    Thanks for the photos on Afropunk. I don’t think I’ll be able to make it but wish I was there! Hopefully we’ll hook up later in the summer. Cheers!

    Thanks for the link, Laina! Bummer that you’re not going to be here for the fest but, yeah, I hear you: Air travel ain’t what it used to be. I’m probably going to be out at AP tonight and will share more photos and will hopefully catch up with James for a quick video interview. Stay tuned and please keep in touch!
