Patrisse Cullors

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors is documented saying that she and her fellow organizers are "trained Marxists," making clear their movement's ideological Marxist foundation. Cullors, 36, is the protégé of Eric Mann, former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terror organization, and spent years absorbing the Marxist-Leninist ideology that shaped her worldview.

"We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories and I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk... we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia (BLM co-founder Alicia Garza) in particular are trained organizers."
