The 37-year-old announced the step back from the Black Lives Matter Global Network to devote herself – reports the BBC – to her second book, ‘An Abolitionist’s Handbook’, due out later this year, and to projects on TV with Warner Bros. “With intelligent people. , experienced and committed supporting the organization in this transition I know the Black Lives Matter Global Network foundation is in good hands – he said in a statement – The foundation’s agenda remains the same: eradicating white supremacy and building institutions focused on the value of life “. The decision, which has matured for some time, has nothing to do – he argued – with what he considers ‘attempts by the right to discredit it’ after criticism of his lifestyle and after the its heritage. Last month the New York Post reported that Cullors – accused of using the foundation’s resources to get rich – bought a fourth $ 1.4 million home near Malibu. In April, the foundation confirmed that Cullors received $ 120,000 for his work between 2013 and 2019.
