    The state of Michigan switched Flint, Michigan’s water supply in 2011 from Lake Huron to the Flint River, which is notorious for not being the cleanest water source. They did this to save money, and in the process, failed to treat the corrosive water. The water began making people sick. “They complained of skin lesions, … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/meet-little-miss-flint-the-girl-speaking-up-for-her-city/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    Being able to attend the Black Panther European premiere was an experience that I will never forget and it’s all thanks to VAMP for allowing me to represent Affinity at the premiere. The opportunity arose when I was simply scrolling through Twitter where I saw a tweet saying something along the lines of “Looking for Black … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/my-experience-at-the-black-panther-european-premiere/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    Kendrick Lamar and SZA made jaws drop upon the release of their collaborative single “All The Stars” last month. The slick, catchy tune–released as part of the soundtrack for the upcoming Black Panther film (Black Panther: The Album)–now has an equally enthralling music video, directed by Dave Meyers, to accompany it. The music video does more than … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/kendrick-lamar-and-sza-unveil-dazzling-music-video-for-all-the-stars/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    It’s no secret that big-budget films have become the bane of our existence. It seems as though the years following 2016 have been the years for remakes and sequels when it comes to reviving old films. The amount of films scheduled to make an appearance in 2018 is rather large, and that’s one of the biggest issues … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/netflix-has-hollywood-shook-with-its-original-movies-shows/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    A movie that has grabbed, hoarded and kept close my attention: Black Panther (2018). T’Challa, the prince of Wakanda who carries the current title of the Black Panther, was weaved into the Marvel Cinematic Universe during the events of Captain America: Civil War. And while the film’s main focus was a feud sparked between Captain … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/black-panther-a-stepping-stone-into-afrofuturism/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read
