The singer dedicated two billboards in his hometown to the memory of Breonna Taylor.
The singer had recently purchased billboard space in his native Louisville, Kentucky to promote his forthcoming Anniversary album but in the wake of the controversial grand jury decision on the Breonna Taylor case, he instead decided to use the space to honour her memory.
“Dear Breonna Taylor,” one of the billboards read. “You’ve brought the city of Louisville together like I’ve never seen before and we will never forget you…”
Tiller adds to the 26 billboards Oprah Winfrey purchased in Louisville to demand justice for Breonna Taylor, dedicating one billboard for every year of her shortened life.
Tensions surrounding the grand jury’s decision have risen in the past week due to Kentucky attorney general Daniel Cameron’s reluctance to expeditiously release the grand jury recordings to the public and the revelation that he did not recommend murder charges against the involved officers. He has reportedly been given a noon deadline this Friday to release the recordings.
