Oprah buys billboards demanding justice for Breonna Taylor in Kentucky

Oprah Winfrey is continuing her campaign for justice for Breonna Taylor.

A week after she announced that Taylor would be featured on the cover of September’s issue of O Magazine, it has been revealed that Winfrey is also taking out billboards around Louisville, Kentucky, urging residents to “demand that the police involved in the killing of Breonna Taylor be arrested and charged,” the sign reads. Also included is a link to UntilFreedom.com, a social justice advocacy group that has focused efforts on Taylor’s case.

“If you turn a blind eye to racism, you become an accomplice to it,” reads a quote from Winfrey, 66, on the billboard.

The 26-year-old EMS employee was killed by a barrage of police gunfire in the middle of the night on March 13, after cops entered Taylor’s Louisville home with a “no-knock warrant” based on a tip that her partner, Kenneth Walker, had trafficked drugs through her home.

The pair were in bed when officers broke through her door. Believing they were intruders, Walker fired one shot, injuring one officer. They met Walker’s defense with a hail of more than 20 bullets.

Walker survived. Taylor, shot at least eight times, died several minutes later at the scene.

Since then, millions of Americans, including a number of highly influential celebrities, have taken to social media and the streets to protest Taylor’s death, and demand that the officers involved be arrested and charged for her death.AMIBC® - VOTE! BE COUNTED! BE HEARD!
