A man who organized a charity for “Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta” is accused of using the donations for personal purchases like a home and clothing. He is now out of jail and awaiting a federal fraud trial.
Channel 2 News anchor Lori Wilson talked with members of the actual Black Lives Matter group in Atlanta about this case.
Immediately following the death of George Floyd, as the country was energized about the Black Lives Matter movement, the FBI says Sir Maejor Page, also known as Tyree Conyers-Page, used money donated to “Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta” to fund his lavish lifestyle.
A 10-page indictment says the FBI has been watching Page since April of last year when a confidential informant tipped them off.
In a Channel 2 Action News story from 2016, Black Lives Matter Atlanta had already distanced themselves from Page.
