This weekend, Afropunk Fest 2015 took over Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park, and in its 11th year, the two-day celebration of black arts and culture included performances from Ms. Lauryn Hill, Grace Jones, SZA, and Kelis.

This year, Afropunk worked with photographers from the Instagram community to document the theme of “protest” at the festival, and highlighted stunning work from photographers Ruddy Roye, who often photographs “the forgotten man” in his hometown Brooklyn; Devin Allen, whose images from the Baltimore protests went viral earlier this year; documentary photographer Malin Fezehai; and Liberian artist Mambu Bayoh. The images appeared on Afropunk’s and the individual photographers’ accounts and shows the powerful impact of the annual festival.
