The Black Punk Archive

Here’s how this page is introduced:

“This page has been compiled and maintained by David Ensminger, writer for Maximum Rock’nRoll, Houston Press, the Journal of Popular Music Studies, Postmodern Culture, and other publications. It tries to document and preserve the input, history, and contributions made by black/African American punk participants. If you would like more information, or would also like to share some of your own memories and archives, please email David at [email protected]. Also, look for his book Visual Vitriol, a history of punk flyers, due out Summer 2011 on the University of Mississippi Press.”

If you’re a fan of bands like the Bad Brains, Fishbone, Snot and any other bands featuring Africa-American punks, you’re gonna love browsing through this site.
