The evolution of the Black Lives Matter movement in the United States from its creation to nowadays

Abstract : Created in 2013 to denounce police violence against Black people in the United States, the Black Lives Matter movement has since become a global movement. Yet, one can find its evolution surprising: it arose during the presidency of the first ever Black American president, Barack Obama, but declined during most of Donald Trump’s presidency. The first protests of the movement were a cry of anger of the Black community towards police violence, yet those protests quickly shed light on a much deeper issue engraved in the American society: the issue of structural racism. Therefore, this study gives an insight of racial inequalities in the United States and examines the development of the movement through the analysis of the cultural, social and political context in which it has progressed since its creation.
