Black women have now officially broken the vampire barrier. Twilight: Breaking Dawn 2, set to be released in November, will feature some new characters, among the newbies will be a trio of vampires known as the Amazon coven. According to the Breaking Dawn 2 wiki, “Kachiri” was a member of an ancient native South American tribe that resided in the forest. Several years after becoming a vampire, Kachiri changed her two best-friends ‘Zafrina’ and ‘Senna’–eventually they became the Amazon coven.
Don’t look for me to become a Twihard anytime soon, but I do have two new reasons to give the Twilight franchise another chance.
