The annual festival this past weekend attracted thousands of innately stylish people from all backgrounds to Brooklyn's Commodore Barry Park, where they grooved to the sounds of Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Kelis, Lauryn Hill, Gary Clark, Jr. and other big acts.
These proudly pierced, tattooed, braided and Afro-wearing individuals also had the opportunity to express their unique voices freely on "Activism Row," where non-profit organizations set up booths to educate attendees on political, racial and gender equality issues.
Needless to say, it wasn't hard to get the crowd talking. The Huffington Post interviewed festival goers at AfroPunk 2015 on what black beauty really means. Read their remarkably candid responses below.
