Unless you were under a rock that was under an even bigger rock, you know that last weekend Afro Punk took place in Brooklyn, New York. Individuals came from near and far to experience the festival that has been called one of the greatest cultural experiences of our time. It is a gumbo of sorts where free spirits, forward thinkers, colorful energy and artistic beings are all served as one delightful dish.
Unfortunately, the Naturally Silk2 family was unable to attend this year but that didn’t stop us from getting our lives (several times). Like many of you, we were tuned in to social media watching live footage and searching the hashtag. Now I know that there is nothing like being present and counted but this was the next best thing and I must admit, I felt the energy.
I was so amazed at the amount of artistic expression that took place. Aside from the acts that showed up and showed out, the audience was filled with bold expressions via personal style from head to toe. Oh, and since we are talking about heads, I must say that the natural beauties were serving up a little bit of everything and I was so inspired!
In the event that you missed out, below you will find a few of my favorite natural hair moment from Afro Punk 2016. Take a look and tell me what you think.
