AU where Hogwarts is a school for left revolutionaries


and Griffindor is anarchist, Ravenclaw communist, and Hufflepuff socialist. Slytherin is Anonymous?

"Why should some people walk barefoot, so that others can travel in luxurious cars? Why should some live for thirty-five years, so that others can live for seventy years? Why should some be miserably poor, so that others can be hugely rich? I speak on behalf of the children in the world who do not have a piece of bread. I speak on the behalf of the sick who have no medicine, of those whose rights to life and human dignity have been denied."

Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges (who was often referred to as “The Black Mozart”) was born in Guadeloupe, in 1745. His father was George Bologne de Saint-Georges (a wealthy planter) and his mother, one of Saint-Georges’ slaves, was called Nanon.

During the French Revolution, he was colonel of the Legion St. George, the first all-black regiment in Europe. However, today he is mainly remembered as the first classical composer of African descent.
