#BlackHogwarts Is Reimagining the Harry Potter Series on Twitter

The Harry Potter series was perfection in a lot of way, but there are still fun ways to reimagine it.

The demographics of Hogwarts, for example, skewed pretty white, much like the United Kingdom overall. The school of witchcraft and wizardry wasn’t exactly teeming with black students, with the few memorable characters including Dean Thomas (Alfred Enoch), Angelina Johnson (Tiana Benjamin), and Lee Jordan (Luke Youngblood). With that being the case, Black Twitter is having fun imagining how Harry Potter’s alma mater would have been different if more black students had attended.

#BlackHogwarts has taken off, and participants are relishing the chance to combine their love for Harry Potter with elements of black culture. Some of the results have been particularly great, such as Snoop Dogg being suggested as a replacement for Herbology Professor Pomona Sprout and “That’s So Raven” alum Raven-Symoné for Divination Professor Sybil Trewaney. See some other highlights below.

The original Hogwarts was amazing, and so is Black Hogwarts.
