As more and more questions are raised about the spending practices of Black Lives Matter (BLM) leaders, another report has surfaced about some very questionable money transfers among the leadership.
According to a new report by the New York Post, a mansion in Toronto, formerly the headquarters of the local Communist Party, was purchased for $6.3 million in July of 2021. The buyer was M4BJ, and the location has been used to house an arts center called the “Wildseed Centre for Art and Activism.” However, the person running M4BJ is reportedly Janaya Khan, wife of BLM founder Patrisse Cullors.
The money to buy the mansion reportedly came from BLM, however, and the purchase came only a few months after Cullors had caved to pressure to resign in the wake of revelations about her own real estate empire, valued at over $3 million, amidst speculation that the money came from BLM’s fundraising coffers. It is not immediately clear if the money was approved before or after Cullors resigned from her position as executive director of the Black Lives Matter Global Network in May of 2021.
On the Wildseed website’s list of staff, however, Khan’s name is nowhere to be found despite the fact that the owner, M4BJ, is her organization, which is listed as a charity in Canada. The site describes Wildseed as “a vessel that seeks to nurture Black radical creation in Canada.” No mention is made of why the money was transferred through M4BJ, rather than the Canadian branch of BLM.
The report comes only days after the Washington Examiner dropped a bombshell report that over $60 million was unaccounted for in the BLM treasury, mostly accumulated in the form of donations after George Floyd’s death and the ensuing protests.

Furthermore, nobody seems to know who is actually in charge at BLM, or who is responsible for handling the money, as most of its leaders have left, and the two individuals tapped to take charge of those affairs never actually accepted the offer or served the organization as directors. One of the two BLM directors remaining went so far as to scrub any mention of BLM from his social media after the Examiner tried to contact him for comment.
In addition, BLM has failed to file a Form 990 tax return for 2020, which may put BLM into hot water with the IRS for delinquency.
All of this has created a furor of speculation about a potentially massive scandal brewing for BLM regarding misappropriated funds, and enormous amounts of money missing and/or unaccounted for, possibly (and illegally) into the private accounts of various BLM directors, particularly into those of its founder, Cullors.
While an official IRS audit has yet to be launched, for watchdogs such as Laurie Styron at CharityWatch, there are clear signs of red flags at BLM that need investigating:
“Like a giant ghost ship full of treasure drifting in the night with no captain, no discernible crew, and no clear direction,” Styron said.
