With the popularity of AfroPunk, an alternative music African American festival, the rising wave of Black feminism and the Black Lives Matter movement. We are seeing a generation young Black people not only politicised but finally reconciling what it means to be Black and “alternative”.

In this talk Chardine discusses how coming from a working class background, rather than through university, her journey towards becoming a Black feminist was started by her obsession with alternative music and how the DIY mantra of punk subcultures can inform activism and help forge a radical identity for Black women today.

Chardine Taylor-Stone is a writer, musician and activist. She was the program coordinator for Black British Feminism: Past, Present and Futures 2015. Her DJ collection spans records from the 1940s to 1990s and she has played at festivals and clubs at home and abroad. Her politics and activism are inspired by her experiences as a Black British working class woman having found her voice through alternative subcultures like Punk Rock and Hip Hop.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
