O, the Oprah Magazine/Alexis Franklin.

The billboards call for the arrest of the officers involved and direct people to the website for social justice organization Until Freedom.

The image on the billboard is the one used on the cover of September’s O Magazine (out Aug.

11), which Oprah ceded to Taylor, marking the first time the media mogul herself did not appear on the cover.

The number of billboards is significant, too — one for each of the years Breonna lived.

“We have to use whatever megaphone we have to cry for justice,” Winfrey said in a note on the magazine’s digital site when the cover was unveiled at the end of July.

“And that is why Breonna Taylor is on the cover of O magazine.

Oprah Winfrey‘s Major Movie Roles Ranked, From ‘The Color Purple‘ to ‘A Wrinkle in Time‘ (Photos) .

In this forgettable adaptation of an otherwise powerful novel by Richard Wright, Winfrey plays the mother to Bigger Thomas.

Winfrey never plays herself in the movies.

And yet in Disney‘s ‘A Wrinkle in Time,’ she’s literally larger than life, appearing as a giant in the sky dressed in chain mail and a massive blonde pillow of hair spewing Oprah-isms.

Winfrey gave her all for the adaptation of Toni Morrison’s ‘Beloved,’ showing sadness and anger in equal measure on screen.

But the film was a sprawling and overlong epic as handled by Jonathan Demme, and the its failure at the box office sent Winfrey into a ‘depression.

Winfrey plays a small but significant role in Ava DuVernay‘s civil rights drama ‘Selma.

‘ In a powerful scene that isn’t tantamount to the plot but is crucial to the movie’s punishing fight for justice, Winfrey attempts to register to vote in Alabama and comes face to face with a ruthless clerk trying to find any reason to deny her the right to vote.


‘The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks‘ (2017).

In this HBO movie, Winfrey plays a woman searching for a mother she never knew.

But after years of lies and cover ups from the medical community, the Lacks family has grown untrusting and paranoid.

Winfrey plays Henrietta Lacks‘ daughter as unpredictable and volatile, and her performance anchors a movie about how an African-American woman battling her own paranoia comes to terms with her heritage and family’s legacy.

In ‘The Butler,’ Winfrey walks a fine line between sweet and motherly — and even unlikable.

It’s the type of performance where Winfrey is convincing enough playing nice that you’re surprised when she reveals she’s not a pushover.

In what is her finest work by a mile, Steven Spielberg got a hold of Winfrey just before she was ‘Oprah.

Her early line about fighting her whole life earned her an Oscar nomination, but I feel more sorry for the woman who slapped Oprah in the film and lived to tell the tale.

Where does Oprah’s larger than life role in “A Wrinkle in Time” rank?.

For being such a larger than life figure, Oprah Winfrey has gravitated as an actress toward playing more modest women of an ordinary stature.

Winfrey is so celebrated as a media personality, she doesn’t often get the credit for her versatility, strength and naturalism on screen.
