Oprah Winfrey Gives Up Cover Of The Oprah Magazine To Honor Breonna Taylor

Published: Thursday 30th Jul 2020 by Sam

Oprah Winfrey is stepping aside for a greater cause.

The mogul has appeared on the cover of every issue of The Oprah Magazine for more than 20 years.

However, she’s using the September edition of the lifestyle publication to spotlight the need for justice for Breonna Taylor – the unarmed Black woman who lost her life at the hands of police.

Full story below…

Speaking on the move, Winfrey said:

“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. 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. 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 September issue honors her life and the life of every other Black woman whose life has been taken too soon. Head to OprahMag.com for more—and thank you to @alexis_art, a 24-year-old digital artist, who captured the essence of Breonna. The issue will be available wherever you buy or download magazines on 8/11.”

The commendable move arrives days after it was announced that O Mag would cease operation of its print edition and rebrand as a digital-only offering.

    oprah didn’t put her old damn face on the magazine cover finally! TG 🙏

    Is this for real?! First off, she wasn’t sleeping… Second of all, she was part of a drug and gun enterprise with her ex boyfriend. Thirdly, her name, home and vehicle we’re on the warrant.

    A policeman was shot in the leg as he entered her home. You can’t expect an officer not to shoot back. Her ex-boyfriend said he fired the shots at the officers but ask yourself this… If it really was him that fired the shots at officers, he surely would have been hit by one of the 20 shots fired in response, right?

    Please stop falling for this, people!

        Wow! That’s mess up

        Let’s not promote misinformation, Shayla. There’s no definitive proof that BT was apart of the criminal enterprise you’re alluding to and you forgot to mention that BT’s boyfriend had a concealed weapons permit allowing him to have the gun.

    She doesn’t deserved to be on a cover. Just blame on her thug boy friend. She dated the wrong guy! That’s it! She worked EMS, so she probably got plenty of drugs for his drug dealer boyfriends. I hoping the police will keep investigate them and will found out more mess.
