Black Lives Matter Cofounder Patrisse Cullors on Its Six-Year Anniversary

Teen Vogue | Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors Talks Prison Abolition, Therapy as Reparations, and Teaming Up With Angela Davis and Yara Shahidi

Patrisse Cullors helped start a movement. One of three original founders of Black Lives Matter, she says she’s been involved in activist efforts for her community since she was 16 years old, and what brought her into activist spaces in the first place was the people who had come before her. “What was so important for me as a young person was having generations above me really spend the time with me to talk about organizing and activism and spend the time with me to help me shape what my role was going to be,” she tells Teen Vogue.
