#BlackLivesMatter in Popular Culture (digital)

Master Class for Students / Free digital admission / Register at bibliothek@amerikahaus.de


This lecture for the Oberstufe only will take place online via Zoom.


This student seminar explores the Black Lives Matter movement through contemporary U.S. popular culture. Since 2013, when #BlackLivesMatter was founded, cultural media that address issues of racism, police violence, or social justice have been gaining traction. Music, movies, TV programs, books, comedy shows, and podcasts that explore the Black experience are celebrated in the mainstream media, while racially insensitive cultural products are called out and sometimes cancelled.

This lecture will give an overview of the Black Lives Matter movement and its impact on art and entertainment. We will take a closer look at music – from Kendrick Lamar to Beyoncé and Childish Gambino –, TV shows like Black-ish and Dear White People, comedy shows like Key & Peele, and celebrities’ activism and support of #BLM.

Speaker: Dr. Bärbel Harju, LMU
