CONCLUSION

It is clear that the black community is not represented in mainstream Halloween Wakanda costumes. This means that when it comes to celebrating Halloween, black people are always left out of the fun.

The representation gap can be attributed to a number of reasons. One being that most people in North America and Europe associate Halloween with death and horror, which does not resonate with African culture. Another reason is because most people don’t know what Afrocentric costumes look like, so they don’t want to take the time or make the effort to find them.

We hope this article has given you some ideas on how you can celebrate your Afrocentric culture during this holiday season!
