Women of Wakanda – New Orleans is an afrofuturistic parade krewe, a collective of visionaries, creatives, professionals, business owners and self-proclaimed blerds!
As a part of this year’s Chewbacchus Parade during Mardi Gras, the Women of Wakanda made a spaceship that carried DJ Fúnkè playing African pop music, known as Afro House.
Along with the spaceship, the krewe handmade their own throws including Wakanda-themed magnets, earrings and tokens. The krewe brings together women from different professional fields.
“I’m amazed at how many women are actually interested and excited to be a part of our krewe. We have women who are from all facets of life from a few different places across the country from social justice warriors to environmental scientists.”
