Fresh off the hilarity of #NigeriansAtHogwarts, Black folks are once again lighting up Twitter with #IfHogwartsWasAnHBCU, a humorous take on what would happen if Harry Potter attended a historically Black college.

While #IfHogwartsWasAnHBCU popped up as early as 2011, this weekend’s #NigeriansAtHogwarts and #JamaicansAtHogwarts no doubt reinvigorated the hashtag. It also proved Black folks love fantasy books like Harry Potter, too.

So, what would life be like if Harry, Hermione, and Ronald attended a HBCU?

Take a look.

What do you think Hogwarts would be like if it was at a HBCU?

    The one about professor Badu and the financial aid office being the secret chamber was on point. And of course the natural hair spells ????????

      Lols. I cracked! I so agree with the Chamber of Secrets=Fin Aid. No one IRL really knows how that shit actually works! Lol.

    Black Twitter has shown very funny and witty words. The Morgan Freeman reference was very accurate too including the financial aid office.

    LOL I love this. As a Harry Potter fan (yes I am a nerd) I would love to see a black version of Harry Potter and Hogwarts someone needs to make this happen it can be like our version of the Wiz.

    Raven Symone would be High Inquisitor & Head of the Improper Use of Blackness.
