"Hermione Was Black. Dumbledore Was Gay." The Librarian Is In Podcast, Ep. 36
Welcome to The Librarian Is In, The New York Public Library's podcast about books, culture, and what to read next.
We kick off our weekly podcast adventure with the founders of Black Girls Create! We talk about what it's like to be a black girl nerd, defaulting to whiteness in books and pop culture, nerds vs. geeks vs. dweebs, feminism and visibility and representation -- and, of course, sooooo much Harry Potter.
Guest Stars: Bayana and Robyn
Black Girls Create:
- The blog
- The #WizardTeam podcast (and here's the episode in which they talk about seeing The Cursed Child)
- Hogwarts BSU
- Black Woman Creators
All the Harry Potter stuff in the library -- books in multiple languages, all the films, soundtracks... go nuts!
