IBORRA MALLENT, Juan Vicente. Black Lives Matter through U.S. TV Series. Norteamérica [online]. 2018, vol.13, n.2, pp.279-297. ISSN 2448-7228.

This article proposes an exploration of how the demands of the Afro-American anti-racist movement Black Lives Matter have been reflected in U.S. television series. In recent years, the number of series that include Afro-American themes has increased considerably, similar to what happened in the 1970s when the rise of black power sparked a boom in Blaxploitation. The author deals with how the series’ narratives incorporate social denunciation, using an intersectional class, gender, and race approach.

Keywords : television series; Afro-American culture; racial capitalism; police violence.
