Meghan Markle 'pitching documentary about Black Lives Matter founder' Patrisse ...

Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle is reportedly pitching a documentary about a Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder, as part of her and Prince Harry's lucrative deal.

Patrisse Cullors, one of the three individuals who founded the BLM movement, would be the target of the documentary that the Duchess of Sussex wants to produce, according to The Mirror. 

Cullors is said to have 'hugely inspired' Meghan, and she pitched the documentary to because she has been 'blown away by the incredible work Patrisse has done.

Los Angeles-born Patrisse, 36, founded Black Lives Matter in 2013 with Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi, after they were driven into action following the acquittal of George Zimmerman, who was accused of killing Trayvon Martin in Florida in 2012.

The movement began with the simple #BlackLivesMatter hashtag, but grew into what is seen today - with people protesting in the streets against racial inequality.

A Facebook post by Alicia Garza called 'A Love Letter to Black People' - published following Zimmerman's acquittal - first used the phrase. The post was then shared with the hashtag, leading to the movement.

Organizers say the movement's goal is to 'eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities.'

In a statement announcing the deal that will see them making movies, shows and kid's programs, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said: 'Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope. 

'As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us,' adding that 's 'unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action.'
