#SayHerName: Kyrie Irving, Common Team for TV Special Demanding Justice for Breonna Taylor

Published: Tuesday 7th Jul 2020 by Rashad

Nearly four months have passed since Louisville, KY healthcare worker Breonna Taylor was killed by police in a raid-gone-wrong, but – as of time reported – the officers who committed the crime have not been brought to justice.

Despite pressures from celebrities likes Beyoncé, Cardi B, Alicia Keys, Queen Latifah, Kerry Washington, and more using their collective platforms to urge action on the case (as we reported here), law officials in the area have not announced any plan to arrest or charge the culprits.

To keep up the momentum of the calls for justice, basketball superstar Kyrie Irving has teamed with rapper/activist Common for the TV special, ‘#SAYHERNAME: BREONNA TAYLOR.’

Taking to Instagram over the weekend, Irving posted:
