A total of 26 Billboards was put up by Oprah Winfrey around Taylor’s hometown of Louisville, Kentucky…This week one of those boards features a large splatter of paint on Breonna’s forehead.
All of the billboards depict the cover of the magazine’s September issue featuring a portrait of Taylor, 26, an African American licensed emergency medical technician, who was shot and killed during a police raid at her home in March. It marks the first time in the magazine’s history that someone other than Winfrey was featured on the cover.
Each billboard — one for each year of Taylor’s life — features a call to action demanding that the three Louisville Metro Police officers who fired their weapons during the raid be arrested and charged. The case has drawn widespread criticism and national protests.
