The tristate area came to Fort Greene Park Sunday, Aug. 9 to enjoy the Soul Summit. The DJs spun house music that had everyone dancing. Attendees even challenged each other to friendly dance-offs in the festive atmosphere. Vendors were selling everything from ice cold drinks to hot pepperxed shrimp. There were clothes and hats and jewelery galore, and the artists and performers showed off their unique styles.

Want something similar but with a whole bunch of fashion-forward young people? Afropunk takes over Commodore Barry Park, also in Fort Greene, next week. Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones and Kele are just a few of the artists scheduled to appear over the Aug. 22-23 weekend. For information, visit www.afropunk.com.
