  • @greenleafown all started with my intention to make a TV show about the Black church. We wanted to show a Black church family in an aspirational and inspirational way. We wanted to show that there’s not just one way to be Black. Not everyone is the same. We have a wide range of experiences within our community. The characters and actors on this show did that in their own way for five whole seasons. So to the actors, writers, creators, producers, crew, and fans: Take your bow. We did that. I know Aunt Mavis is raising a glass to y’all in her jazz bar in Sweden 🥂 #Greenleaf

  • The last time I spoke to Breonna Taylor’s mom, Tamika Palmer, she was having a particularly bad day dealing with the loss of her daughter. She told me, “I can’t stop seeing her face. Her smile. It’s what I miss most about her…I’m still waiting for her to come through the door.” Everybody who’s lost a loved one knows that feeling.
 
For every mother and father whose child is out in the world right now, imagine getting a call in the middle of the night that your daughter has been shot in her apartment. And then you find out the people who killed her were police officers who should never have been there in the first place. What would you want to happen now? Would you be content to hear five months later “there’s an investigation”? And that no one has been held accountable for shooting your innocent daughter multiple times and letting her life bleed out?
 
If not for the coronavirus, I’d be out in the streets marching with the Black Lives Matter protesters. These 26 billboards, one for every year of Breonna’s life, are my offering. My form of protest. We cannot be silent. We have to use whatever megaphone we have to cry for justice.

  • My next Oprah’s Book Club pick, “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents” by @isabelwilkerson, should be required reading for humanity. It eloquently examines the unspoken caste system that has shaped America. In writing this book, Isabel responds to a calling from the ancestors—and the ancestors are pleased.

  • Conversations about race do not have to tear us apart. These discussions can happen in your living rooms, your kitchen tables, and even during soccer games, so they can help those around you see the racial injustices happening in this country.

  • Breonna Taylor. She 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 honors her life and the life of every other Black woman whose life has been taken too soon. Head to OprahMag.com for more—and thank you to @alexis_art, a 24-year-old digital artist, who captured the essence of Breonna. The issue will be available wherever you buy or download magazines on 8/11.

  • Last week when there were false rumors of Congressman John Lewis’ passing, Gayle and I called and were able to speak with him. He sounded weak but was surprisingly more alert than we expected. I had a final chance to tell him what I’ve said every time I’ve been in his presence: “Thank you for your courage leading the fight for Freedom. My life as it is would not have been possible without you.”
I know for sure he heard me. I felt good about that. He understood and was so gracious.
This is one of his last interviews we recently did during the Covid quarantine about his new @johnlewisdoc #GoodTrouble. Thank you for showing us and teaching us what getting into “good trouble” looks like. 🙏🏽
