August 6, Jewel Anderson Comments Afropunk. What does it even mean? InJames Spooner released Afro-Punk, a documentary film that follows the lives of four young African Americans heavily involved in the punk music scene. Punk was a subculture vastly ignored by the black community, and the film reveals the struggle for belonging in each of his subjects.
They see themselves as outsiders with nowhere to go to be themselves. Inspired to wider action, Spooner went on to create a safe space where African American underdogs of all stripes could fully and freely express their spirit. Through the years, other locations have been added as the festival spread to the worlds of food, art, fashion, film, and other forms of music.
Today, overpeople attend the festivals in Atlanta, Paris, London, and Johannesburg. I had the pleasure of attending my first festival in Brooklyn in Within minutes of my arrival, a young man with green and blue dreadlocks skipped past me barefoot holding burning sage.
I stopped him and asked why he was doing this. Social pressure is a powerful animal, and when we are even slightly out of the ordinary, we run the risk of being isolated, shunned, or labeled as an oddball or a freak.
In the desire to be accepted, we often neglect our true selves. But then came Afropunk. However, since its debut, the festival has broadened to accommodate a larger, more inclusive audience: Afropunk gives us the opportunity to step away from everyday society and enter a completely different world.
One can escape his stuffy office cubicle, throw off his jacket and tie, and walk into a carefree world of color.
A world where women don outer space-inspired makeup and wear gargantuan crystals around their necks. A place where men walk around barefoot or sport ten-inch platforms. A community that celebrates and promotes love, acceptance, freedom, individuality, art, expression, and music regardless of your background.
The movement is truly redefining what it means to be black and exposing the diversity of the African American community. Not all black people are into hip-hop, rap, graffiti, gangster images—concepts mass media has continuously pushed as the black norm.
We can be into the arts, rock, metal, bluegrass, folk dancing, and futurism. We can identify as gender fluid and involve themselves in bohemian culture and style.
The point is to normalize subgroups and to defy race-based generalizations.
Photos by Jewel Anderson The festival conveys the message that it is okay to express yourself in any way you like as long as it does no harm to others. It is perfectly fine to dye your hair hot pink, listen to music that others find unusual, and dance in public! One should be herself unapologetically and without explanation.
Ultimately, Afropunk is not solely about being black and alternative but being able to exist in a space of total acceptance. Some of the festivalgoers show up in jeans and a T-shirt, eschewing the outlandish outfits and costumes that many others wear.The Design Society Development (DSD) DESIS Lab is a multi-disciplinary community of practice, based at the Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture, University of Johannesburg, that seeks to better understand how design can best serve the emerging needs of broader society, specifically in the face of staggering inequality and rapid change in Gauteng, South Africa.

History after apartheid is the first solo exhibition by Haroon Gunn-Salie at Goodman Gallery Johannesburg. The exhibition casts light on transitional contemporary South Africa, defined by the history of colonialism and apartheid in a fractious global context of violence, radicalism and neo-colonialism.
