Newly unearthed footage presents a learning opportunity about how and why a US group like Black Lives Matter cares about international matters like Israel vs. Gaza.
It was yesterday that we learned Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors announced she was stepping down as executive director of the BLM Global Network Foundation.
The distinction is important because when it comes to the cottage industry of professional activism, wealthy organizations like Thousand Currents and the Tides Network come up. For those brave enough to read something lengthy, an October 2020 Tablet expose explains how a seemingly grassroots movement like BLM got some serious backing and money from the political elite.
But for our purposes it explains how Patrisse Cullors got her book/TV deals, houses, and money to throw around.
