If "Harry Potter" Characters Were Cast As All Black Actors

    Thanks to the #BlackHarryPotter hashtag.

    Earlier this week, it was announced that Noma Dumezweni will play the role of Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the eighth installment of the Harry Potter series.

    Rowling took to Twitter to confirm that Hermione's race was never specified in the series.

    In response to the news of Hermione's casting, the hashtag #BlackHarryPotter was born and the good people of the internet brilliantly recast all of the characters as black actors.

    Here are some of the best suggestions from the hashtag:

    1. Kerry Washington and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Lily and James Potter.
