WATCH: A beautiful, Black witch navigates modern-day society in Netflix’s ‘Siempre Bruja’

Get ready to be bewitched by a beautiful Afro-Latina actress in Netflix’s upcoming series, Siempre Bruja.

The highly-anticipated title translates to “Always a Witch” and is based on the novel, Yo Bruja by Isidora Chacon.

Angela Gaviria stars as Carmen, an Afro-Colombian witch from the 17th century who travels to 2019 in an effort to avoid being burned at the stake for falling in love. She is offered the time-jumping out only if she agrees to use none of her powers. She agrees and finds herself in Colombia (circa now) and  attempts to start a new life, meet friends and even going to college.
