Lovecraft Country: A Resistance Piece

By Musa Saeed and Sana Murtaza



Lovecraft Country can be seen as a resistance piece in how it presents a counter-narrative to traditional portrayals of black people in American media. Through a subversion of Lovecraftian horror, swapping of gender roles and its depiction of race, the show serves to undermine not only Lovecraft's damaging depictions of women and black people but to challenge the mainstream media in how it has otherized black identity by presenting them as an expendable people.
