5 Interesting Facts About the AfroPunk Music Festival
Back in 2002, filmmaker James Spooner and 15-year music business veteran Matthew Morgan teamed up to create the 2003 documentary, Afro-Punk. This film highlights the Black experience in the punk rock scene with interviews with Fishbone, 24-7 Spyz, Dead Kennedys, Candiria, Orange 9mm, The Veldt and TV on the Radio. It also explores the cultural presence of Black people in punk rock, dispelling the notion that punk rock is an exclusively white cultural phenomena. The full documentary is available on Youtube.
