Hawk Newsome Net Worth
Hawk Newsome Net Worth is an American lawyer and social activist serving as President of Black Lives Matter Greater NY. A passionate skateboarder, Hawk is also known for having multiple endorsements that have contributed to his net worth. Chivona Newsome is one of the co-founders of BLM along with Hawk. Born April 4, 1977 in Bronx and raised religiously by parents who met at civil rights rallies during 1960s he says that he “kind of was born into this fight.”
His activism began after protesting police violence following George Zimmerman’s acquittal in Florida and Eric Garner’s death in New York City. Subsequently, he co-founded Black Lives Matter Greater New York chapter; other efforts included shutting down George Washington Bridge and rallying 100 people outside Trump Tower to protest police violence.
Hawk Newsome made history during his professional skateboarding career by breaking records and setting new ones, amassing millions in bank account that have since been invested. These achievements led to endorsements, clothing lines and various companies bearing his name; his primary source of income being Birdhouse which he established in 1998 producing skateboards and accessories as well as investments across numerous sectors that has increased his net worth significantly.
Newsome holds strong views on gun ownership and has advocated strongly for black people to arm themselves for self-protection. Recently he made these remarks during an interview on Fox News with Martha MacCallum; some fellow activists strongly objected to her questioning his statement that some situations require force to resolve problems.
His current task involves filing a civil rights violation claim against the NYC Police Department and their top brass. He seeks an unspecified amount in punitive damages, civil rights violations, emotional distress and false imprisonment claims in hopes that this lawsuit will bring light onto police brutality in America.
reports state that Black Lives Matter global network has raised over $90 million in donations this year, yet founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors spent more than her own fortune. Her lavish spending behavior angered some US activists who demanded an investigation of how this organization spends its funds.
Newsome remains a leader of the New Civil Rights Movement despite his criticisms of global networks like Twitter. He is passionate about his cause and willing to sacrifice personal finances for it, inspiring youth in America with over 73,000 Twitter followers and almost 89,000 on Instagram – not to mention being a popular speaker at various events.
