Oprah Winfrey announced today that Breonna Taylor will cover the September issue of O: The Oprah Magazine. The cover image of Taylor was created by Alexis Franklin, a 24-year-old digital artist. Winfrey believes Franklin "captured the essence of Taylor."
Winfrey wrote in her statement:
"Breonna Taylor. She was just like me. She was just like you. And like everyone who dies unexpectedly, she had plans. Plans for a future filled with responsibility and work and friends and laughter."
Winfrey goes on to say:
"What I know for sure: We can't be silent. We have to use whatever megaphone we have to cry for justice. And that is why Breonna Taylor is on the cover of O magazine. I cry for justice in her name."
Taylor, 26, was shot dead in her Louisville, Kentucky home in March by police. Her murder created #JusticeForBreonna rallies, receiving support from celebrities calling for the arrest of the police officers officers responsible for her death.
