Afropunk

I was fortunate enough to attend Afropunk yesterday with one of my friends….I felt so at home.   I want to call it a convention of kindred spirits because the atmosphere of the event was one of universal love. You come as you are and you are loved for it ❤ The strong sense of unity and black pride could not be missed.

The weather was wonderful, the people were beautiful(physically and spiritually) and the performances were amazinggggggggg.  I don’t know how I missed this festival before now(as it’s been happening for ten years) but I’m ultra grateful that I found it ❤

saw this billboard on my way there, what really put me in extra love was if you look closely written subtly under the word gratitude is a definition of courage.

“Courage [kurij, kuhr-] the quality of mind that enables a person to face danger with confidence, resolution and firm control of oneself”

*I didn’t get any good pics of the performances–I was far back and really more concerned with being fully present in the experience but here are the few that I did take 🙂
