Think you know “Black music?” This festival will make you guess again 

At first glance, the term “Afro-punk”” may seem like an oxymoron, a historical inaccuracy. The most famous bands in punk history, from the Ramones to the Sex Pistols to Black Flag, were made up of a particular subset of white culture, driven by adolescent angst, strangely passionate dispassion and musically enacted violence.

But if you head over to the Afropunk Festival this weekend in New York City, you’ll find that the term makes perfect sense.

2 engineers have created the intelligent alternative to Barbie girls will actually want to play with 

Hobbs and Eaves’ Miss Possible series of dolls are modeled after real women who’ve had path-breaking success in science, technology, space and information technology. Their product is designed to be more than a toy, however. Their first doll will be the childhood version of Marie Curie, the Nobel Prize-winning chemist and physicist best known for her discoveries in radioactivity. An accompanying app tells girls about Curie’s life and lets them do experiments and activities like making a compass, initiating a chemical reaction with simple household things like glue and magnets. 

But they need your help | Follow micdotcom
