For the first time in the history of the Oprah magazine, Oprah Winfrey will not be appearing as the cover for her magazine. Instead, the September’s edition will be respecting the late 26-year old Breonna Taylor who was killed by police in March.
Oprah Winfrey already took to her Instagram page to announce this and wrote, “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.”
The intellectual personality, Oprah Winfrey, also mentioned that she thinks about Breonna Taylor a lot and that using Breonna Taylor’s as her September issue’s cover is another megaphone to cry for justice.

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.
