Angela Davis tops annual list of highest-paid activists
In 2018 it looked like the activist’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (September 30) that Davis is the highest-paid activist in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between September 2019 and September 2020, a nearly $40 million lead over her closest competition.
People With Money’s factors
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The American activist has an estimated net worth of $215 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Davis Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Birmingham Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderdavis - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Angela) and a fashion line called “Angela Davis Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Angela fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
