Media mogul Oprah Winfrey has dedicated the front cover of her magazine to the late US citizen Breonna Taylor. Breonna posthumously made history by gracing the cover of the O magazine. This is the first time ever in the 20-year-history of the magazine that Oprah herself was not on the cover, according to media reports.
Oprah took to Instagram and shared the front cover of one of the magazine's final print editions. She dedicated the September issue to Breonna. She expressed that the issue honours Breonna's life and the life of every other black woman "whose life has been taken too soon".
"Her Life Matters" is written in bold on the cover of the mag. Oprah expressed that Breonna had plans for the future but died unexpectedly.
"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.
"I think about Breonna Taylor often. Imagine if three unidentified men burst into your home while you were sleeping. And your partner fired a gun to protect you. And then mayhem."
Oprah urged her followers to continue to speak up against injustices and inequality in the US.
"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 @oprahmagazine."
The Drunk In Love singer recently wrote a letter to the Kentucky Attorney General, Daniel Cameron, demanding justice for Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old fatally shot by Louisville Metro Police Department officers.
Beyonce in her letter urged Cameron to charge the officers involved. She also criticized the lack of progress in the investigation of the unjust killing which took place three months ago.
In the letter, Beyonce called for criminal charges to be brought against the officers in charge and also urged the Attorney General to commit to "transparency in the investigation and prosecution” of the officers’ conduct.
