VIDEO: 2010 Afro-punk Festival

H ear directly from everyday people on what black rock and Afro-punk mean to them. p5rn7vb

Afro Punk Festival 2010 from Liza Eckert on Vimeo.

Here’s some video from two CUNY Graduate Journalism students, and it incorporates a sense of the sights and sounds at the festival along with short interviews with a few folks attending.  What’s cool is that it underscores the fact that community is so important.  That is, everyone needs a place where they don’t feel like an outsider, if only so you and get your energy back up to go out and fight the good fight.
