BLM Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors who resigned from her post at BLM after controversy surrounding her multiple houses and real estate purchases, has now been appointed a commissioner with the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
LA County Supervisor Holly J Mitchell, a Democrat, announced “Cullors will serve on behalf of the 2 million residents of the Second District.”
“Patrisse has demonstrated her understanding of this and has experience using various mediums of art and community engagement to inspire and create change. Patrisse shares my commitment to equity and justice and will use her creativity to make arts and culture more accessible for the residents throughout the Second District,” Mitchell added.
Cullors reacted by saying “I’m thrilled to continue to weave my roles as artist and organizer, where I can continue to support Black creatives. I have a ton of to-do’s on my list. I won’t share them now. Just stay put and watch as they unfold.”
