Seeing Granger, one of the series' most skilled and powerful witches, depicted as a black woman caused a wave of excitement that took over Black Twitter and conjured the #BlackHarryPotter hashtag.

Much like the #NigeriansAtHogwarts tag, the premise behind #BlackHarryPotter was a simple, but important one: What if Harry Potter were written from the perspective of and subsequently filmed with black actors?
