They find themselves in conflicting situations, living the dual life of a Black person in a mostly White community. Afro-Punk features excerpts of performances by Bad Brains, Tamar Kali, Cipher, and Ten Grand. The film also contains exclusive interviews by members of Fishbone, 247- spyz, Dead Kennedys, Candiria, Orange 9mm and TV on the Radio, and others.
