Warner Bros. has signed Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors to a production deal, it was announced last week. Cullors says she is looking forward “to amplifying the talent and voices of other black creatives” in her new role.
“Black voices, especially black voices who have been historically marginalized, are important and integral to today’s storytelling,” she said. “Our perspective and amplification is necessary and vital to helping shape a new narrative for our families and communities. I am committed to uplifting these stories in my new creative role with the Warner Bros. family.”
The deal presumably grants Cullors access to Warner’s distribution channels, which include DC Films, New Line Cinema, Castle Rock Entertainment, CNN, TNT, TBS, and others.
Earlier this month YouTube announced a new “Resist” documentary series, which also includes the 36-year-old activist.
Somebody needs to hear this:
Black liberation isn’t brought to you by AT&T, sponsored by Wells Fargo, or managed by Roc Nation.
And it certainly doesn’t come with a Warner Bros. Television deal, or a shoe from Nike.

Cullors admitted in a 2015 interview that she and one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement are trained Marxists.
“We actually do have an ideological frame,” Cullors said at the time. “Myself and Alicia [Garza] in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories…”
