Throughout this blog, I will dissect the Black Lives Matters movement.
I will begin to look at the origins of Black Lives Matter by including historical context, looking at the founders & activists and their role within the movement. Additionally, I want to take a closer look at the digital progression of the Black Lives Matter movement: analysing their social media accounts, looking at the type of content they post and the response this produces. I will also be looking at, and following, news stories in the media and how they are affected by the increasing level of citizen journalism on social media. Finally, I will analyse how the Black Lives Matter movement may have been misconstrued, how and why people interpret the movement as ‘racist’, the social media accounts and individuals that represent this, and what type of content they post.
Overall, hope to provide an overview of the Black Lives Matter movement that will engage and educate people.
