On February 6, 2021, Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garzaannouncedthat she was pulling out of a World Values Network online gala with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, a prominent American Zionist.
“They approached me about having a conversation about the importance of solidarity between black communities and Jewish communities,” sheexplained, then thanked Palestinian American activist Linda Sarsour for amplifying the larger picture.
According to journalist Michael Brown, Garza has a history of denouncing other public figures who joined propaganda trips to Israel. Boteach’s gala, Browncontinued, appears just as egregious, for it “follow[s] Boteach’s years ofbackingthe racist Donald Trump, thereby making a mockery of the efforts promoted by Black leaders and the wider Black community to advance racial justice and decolonization.”
