Black Girls Create interviews Moon Ferguson on her passion for storytelling and why she created 'Juju' a new web series about black witches
I was tired of seeing Black supernaturals in a negative light or used as a prop. It really set me off when I saw the lack of care put into Bonnie Bennett's character in The Vampire Diaries. That was the final straw for me. Bonnie was the Black pocket witch who cleaned up her friends — the white vampires — messes. She went through so much and lost so much and still ended up with nothing at the end. I was also inspired by shows like Charmed and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and wanted to show Black witches having fun with their magic and using it for the greater good.
