Looking for a Halloween costume idea?

Black witches

Columbia Pictures/Disney/CBBC/FX

How about being a witch? It might be a good idea considering that it’s a rarity to see many Black witches in some of the classic movies and shows we enjoy about such individuals with magical skills. We all love Hocus PocusPractical Magic, The Witches of EastwickCharmed and more, but all of those projects revolved around white women. What happened to the Black ones?

Well, I did some digging and was actually able to find a few to provide you with some Halloween inspo (and some diversity). Do you remember or have you seen these portrayals? Which one is you favorite?


Tia and Tamera Mowry played Apollo and Artemis DuBaer, gods of the sun and moon separated as newborns and brought back together at 21 to restore their original homeland, Coventry, with the help of their combined magical powers.
