This teacher training will give a brief overview of the origins of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) Movement before discussing how this crucial topic has been picked up in film and TV:
How are police brutality, everyday micro-aggressions and racism in general portrayed in these productions? In what manner are protest tools and elements depicted that are employed by BLM? Which of the issues that BLM demands to be changed are addressed?
We will answer these and other questions, and look at apt ways to approach the fight for Black Lives in the classroom.
Constanze Sabathil has an MA degree in American Studies from LMU Munich. With the emergence of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) Movement in 2013, she focused her studies on African-American History. During her time at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI, she was given the opportunity to discuss the movement with Civil Rights Leaders from the 50s and 60s as well as with the President of the BLM chapter of Greater New York. Sabathil’s research culminated in her MA thesis on the origins and the development of BLM. She continuously follows the movement closely, both stateside and in Germany.
