Fuck U Pay Us (FUPU) is an all Black femme punk band with the mission for global Black reparations and music as a form of resistance. Being apart of a band has meant creating a community of Black and Brown femmes all passionate about changing representation of anger and punk music. My dream is that all girls know this is sound and expression an option, FUPU provided me the strength to listen to my intuition on stage and take up as much space as I fucking want. We write songs in response to our world and the problems our communities face. Anti-Blackness is the fear of Black power and freedom to exist without the white supremacy. When we perform we create a space that values Black femmes and women- that says we are here and strong and queer and not gonna take no shit from anyone. Black femmes to the front and suck my nappy Black pussy if you got a problem, our shows draw in a diverse crowd and energy to punk music. My first time seeing an all Black femme mosh pit in the sun was at one of our shows and the feeling of release we all felt screaming the lyrics is radiant.

Jasmine Nyende is a new media artist exploring the field of social memory storage. Through poetry, plays, and experimental performance, she seeks to blur the lines between physical and the digitally mediated social interactions. Intimate and daring, she practices radical openness as a political imagination for dialogue surrounding Black, queer, femme, and economically vulnerable people. Her work revolves around social media, deleted posts, the shame in public memory, and the commoditization of emotional labor. Jasmine runs the Fit Form Function KCHUNG radio show and is lead vocalist for afropunk band Fuck U Pay Us.
