In this episode, screenwriter and filmmaker, LaDarrion Williams, cosplayer and occultist, Kristine aka DJ Lady Loki and I discuss the power, portrayal and cultural resonance of witches and magical beings of African, African-American and Caribbean heritage. In film and television, Black witches been both celebrated and shamefully used and abused. We go deep into the power of these practitioners of craft, their ancestral connection and what happens when Black spirituality gets translated (or mistranslated) on screen.
