TRAVEL TO AFROPUNK
Miles ahead of your average
festival road trip
As we link the AFROPUNK community from around the world, it’s important to us that we connect you with unique experiences, the best value for your money and support before the trip and on the ground. Our goal is to make AFROPUNK the most amazing experience possible.
This year we have partnered with Tastemakers Africa, Black & Abroad, and The Runaway Experience to provide uniquely immersive experiences in Brooklyn that are authentic, inclusive, and most importantly, celebrations of black history and culture. From a fully curated all inclusive itinerary to a Afrobeats dance session, you will enjoy a chance to see, connect, and learn. We out?!

EJI TRAVEL EXPERIENCE
National Memorial For Peace & Justice + The Legacy Museum
The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, which overlooks downtown Montgomery, Alabama, has more than eight hundred steel monuments dedicated to the victims of over four thousand lynchings. A few blocks away, the Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration chronicles the history and continued presence of racial violence in America. Opened in April 2018, these two cultural sites were created by the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) in order to rewrite, and set right, the narratives regarding the African American experience.
The National Memorial for Peace and Justice was recently named one of “The World’s 100 Greatest Places of 2018”, by Time Magazine
