According to New York magazine, Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Melina Abdullah made a video outside the “secretly bought” property in June to commemorate the one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s death.
After The Post’s exclusive investigation in April exposed her acquisition of four high-end US houses for $3.2 million, Cullors said she was weeks away from being in “survival mode.”
Cullors remarked of what she called right-wing media attacks, “It’s because we’re powerful, because we’re winning.” “It’s because we’re posing a threat to the establishment, and we’re posing a threat to white supremacy.”
According to a real estate listing quoted by the magazine, Cullors and her colleagues didn’t give any specifics about the opulent property shown behind them in the video, a 6,500-square-foot spread with more than six bedrooms and baths, fireplaces, a pool, and parking for more than 20 automobiles.
According to the startling revelation, the property was purchased in October 2020 with cash provided to the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation.
Dyane Pascall bought the seven-bedroom home just two weeks after BLMGNF got $66.5 million from its fiscal sponsor earlier that month. According to New York Magazine, Pascall is the financial manager for Janaya and Patrisse Consulting, an LLC run by Cullors and her spouse, Janaya Khan.
Ownership was transferred within a week to an LLC in Delaware, ensuring the property’s owner wouldn’t be disclosed, according to the report.
Cullors, BLM’s co-founder, resigned in May as the group’s executive director amid criticism over buying three homes in the Los Angeles area and another outside Atlanta.
The purchase of the nearly $6 million home had not been previously reported and BLM officials tried to keep its existence a secret from a journalist looking into the transaction, according to the report.
The residence was purchased with the intention for it to serve as “housing”
