Should we expect BLM to become Black Lives Matter-International in a near or distant future? Are there inherent risks of going global? Is such transformation inevitable or accidental? What are the assets and shortcomings of such transitions?
From a historical point of view the civil rights movement like the Black Panthers never became transnational. Other campaigns (less their campaigners) such as Save Darfur rapidly went international but disappeared when the issue was - allegedly - over. Local and national campaign leaders might have a difficult time 'exporting' themselves and their messages globally; and other individuals become global icons, malgré elles.
