Afropunk has also garnered a reputation as a place to see and be seen, and there was amazing fashion on display Saturday as well, that often incorporated activism (another big part of the fest). Check out this gallery featuring a lot of the people of Afropunk, and some of the music that was happening on Saturday, above. Stay tuned for lots more pics of Saturday's performers.
