Since the annual AfroPunk Festival wrapped up in Brooklyn on August 23 there have been hundreds of photos circulating on social media of the strikingly beautiful attendees. Women of all shades of brown graced the festival rocking colorful hair, traditional African makeup, dashikis, head wraps, body art — it was truly a space to revel in the beauty of black womanhood.
Selecting just 27 photos was an overwhelming task, because we honestly could have posted ten times that many. All photos were taken by photographer Damion Reid. Please check out his blog and Instagram account for more.
Did any of you attend the festival? What was your experience?
