Breonna Taylor Graces September Cover of O magazine

After more than 20 years of gracing the covers of her popular O magazine, media mogul Oprah Winfrey will step aside next month to feature Breonna Taylor.

The cover, which highlights a portrait of the late emergency medical technician done by Janelle Washington, includes a quote by Oprah saying, “If you turn a blind eye to racism, you become an accomplice to it.”

Winfrey, who also wrote a column detailing the historic move to not be the face of the issue, added in an Instagram post: “Breonna Taylor 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 will be available at newsstands or for download on Aug. 11.
