Had so much fun dancing to them at Afro Punk this year. By far my favorite new band discovery there.

Think you know “Black music?” This festival will make you guess again 

At first glance, the term “Afro-punk”” may seem like an oxymoron, a historical inaccuracy. The most famous bands in punk history, from the Ramones to the Sex Pistols to Black Flag, were made up of a particular subset of white culture, driven by adolescent angst, strangely passionate dispassion and musically enacted violence.

But if you head over to the Afropunk Festival this weekend in New York City, you’ll find that the term makes perfect sense.

So excited for Bad Brains, Sharon Jones, Cold Specks, and everyone else this weekend! If you are anywhere nearby GO!

Quote

I think the image of the ideal ‘sharing’ black brother or sister is what keeps me from writing down to black people (and keeps me searching through our writing even in unlikely places), for no matter how presently worthless American society may consider our efforts we are the guardians of certain hidden truths, secret stories the real stories of the journeys of our people.
— Tom Dent, in a letter to Alvin Aubert

Quote reblogged from Disability in Kidlit with 1,094 notes

A great many disabilities are invisible to the outside world, meaning you might look at a disabled person and never have any idea that they had a disability, even one that has an extreme impact on their lives and mobility.
