Betwixt the Books: Discussion – Does Hermione have to be White?

Hello all! I promised you more Betwixt the Books from me and Michaela from The Pied Piper Calls, and I’ve come through!

We took some time today to discuss the casting of an African Hermione, race in books, and to be generally annoyed by those who have unacknowledged white privilege enough to be annoyed by the casting. Michaela made a blog post about her individual feelings which is a very good read, and then the video is here!
