BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors performs in LA to mark opening of new museum exhibit on Yoruba diaspora

BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors made a rare public appearance on Saturday at the Fowler Museum in Los Angeles, where she led a procession of women in white dresses bound together by their hair.

The performance art piece, titled Ori Whispers, marked the opening of the museum’s new exhibit on the Yoruba diaspora.

Cullors went barefoot and wore an off-white ankle-length dress with gauze sleeves as she led the procession. The other women trailed behind wearing brighter white dresses and crocs.

Ori is a Yoruba metaphysical concept tying together the themes of “consciousness, individuality, and spiritual intuition.” The museum described the performance as a “celebration of Black femme Ori strength and power.”

In addition to her work with BLM, Cullors is also a visual artist and filmmaker. She has an exhibit currently on display at the Fowler Museum titled Free Us.
