Breonna Taylor Graces Oprah Magazine Cover Solo, First Time Ever

Though Winfrey has shared the cover of O magazine with others, like her best friend Gayle King or her "A Wrinkle in Time" co-stars Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon, she has never not appeared on the cover herself. It is the first time in its 20-year history that an O magazine cover has not featured Winfrey.

"She was just like me". She sort of acknowledged she was there and was really pretty quiet and said she obviously loved her daughter and just wanted to make sure everyone understood what happened.

She directed readers to sign Change.Org and Color of Change petitions addressed to Kentucky officials, visit Stand With Bre for guidance on how to call and speak to officials to ask for the officers' arrest, donate to the Louisville Community Bail Fund to for protesters in the city where Taylor died and hashtag #SayHerName on social media. "I think about Breonna Taylor often".

"Breonna Taylor", Oprah begins.

"Born June 5 1993".

"If you turn a blind eye to racism, you become an accomplice to it", writes Oprah.

In the piece, Winfrey also shares more about Taylor and who she was as a person - a vehicle lover, someone who appreciated music, a force in the life of her 20-year-old sister, and an an emergency room technician. "And then mayhem", Oprah continues.

Digital artist Alexis Franklin created the cover image.

She also writes that Taylor was the same age as two girls from her school in South Africa, who have been quarantining with her since March.

"Looking at it, I see an innocence, simple but powerful", Franklin said in the story.

"Breonna Taylor was a force in the life of her 20-year-old sister". They opened fire and killed Taylor while she was asleep. The suspects did not live at that address and no drugs were found. "No uniforms. No 'This is the police!' Terrifying Breonna and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker". He fired his gun after they heard banging at the door. Imagine if three unidentified men burst into your home while you were sleeping.
