Background Related to SCOTUS Nominee
October 23, 2020
Member Mike Lewis met a woman, Coral Anika Theill, several years ago through his work with the NAACP. He has kept in touch with her infrequently over the years. She has recently contacted him to let him know of media attention to her because she was part of the People of Praise sect although she calls it a cult. It is the same sect the current Supreme Court nominee belongs to. Coral suffered abuse while in the sect and has written a book about it. She has been doing several interviews, e.g. CNN and Democracy Now. For more information, see her website at http://coralanikatheill.com.
