"This resistance is not new!" the statement reads. "We, the people who have lived under the thumb of white supremacy, gender inequality, homophobia, environmental rape and economic apartheid have always known that when the world is an outrage, the sensible thing to do is defy it. Resistance is survival, not just a hashtag. But if it's going to be a social media call to political arms, let's make that fucker count!"

Afropunk Festival will take place August 25-26 at Commodore Barry Park in Fort Greene, Brooklyn; Afropunk Carnival of Consciousness will be held October 13-14 at 787 Windsor Complex in Atlanta. Tickets are available here. See the full lineups below.
