Oprah honors Breonna Taylor with O magazine cover

Oprah honors Breonna Taylor with O magazine cover

NBPA executive director Michelle Roberts was also on the call, and she revealed how some of the players were initially unaware of the presence of Taylor on the call. Instead the upcoming September issue cover will include imagery of Breonna Taylor, honoring her life that was taken senselessly and far too soon at the hands of police. As I write this, in early July, just one of the three officers involved has been dismissed from the police force. She was just like you.

Winfrey also shares details of her recent chat with Taylor's mother, Tamika Palmer, who explains how she is still grappling with her daughter's untimely death and details what she experienced that sorrowful night. "Plans for a future filled with responsibility and work and friends and laughter", Winfrey wrote on Thursday.

Oprah Winfrey's "cry for justice" for Breonna Taylor has taken the form of a historic magazine cover. Imagine if three unidentified men burst into your home while you were sleeping. This officer blindly fired ten rounds from his gun, some of which went into the adjoining apartment. "To me, the God I serve says we're all brothers and sisters in His eyes. We have to use whatever megaphone we have to cry for justice", she continued.

Oprah Winfrey is using the cover of O, The Oprah Magazine to spotlight someone else this month. Her smile. It's what I miss most about her. "I still can't grasp the concept of her being gone", she reportedly said.

Police said Kenneth Walker, Taylor's boyfriend, fired at the officers and hit one of them in the leg. It feels so surreal.

Franklin tells O Magazine: "I am so happy to play a small part in this long-overdue, world-changing narrative on racial injustice and police brutality".

Digital artist Alexis Franklin, 24, worked on the cover's portrait based on Taylor's photo.

In an Instagram and Twitter posts, Winfrey shared why she and the magazine's team chose to put the Louisville woman on the front page.

The September issue will be available on August 11.
