It's been 20 years since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone first came out, and ever since then, the series has cemented itself as one of the touchstones of popular culture. Generations of children have grown up reading the series focusing on the adventures of the boy wizard and his friends.
There's always been one big complaint about Harry Potter, however – it's not racially diverse. Except for that one black kid who always called out Quidditch matches, black Potter fans – like moi – have been hard pressed to see themselves in the wizarding world.
