Kentucky native, Bryson Tiller demands justice for Breonna Taylor!
The “Don’t” singer originally sought out to use billboards to promote his new album, Anniversary. However, he plans to use them to pay tribute to Breonna Taylor just days after a grand jury decided not to charge a single police officer in connection to her death.
“Dear Breonna Taylor, you’ve brought the city of Louisville together like I’ve never seen before and we will never forget you… – Bryson Tiller,” reads one of the billboards alongside hashtags #SayHerName and #JusticeForBreonnaTaylor.
Just last week the singer reflected on the grand jury’s decision via Twitter, recalling some of the racism he experienced growing up in Kentucky.

“Been doing a lot of thinking about what’s going on in my hometown right now. The blatant racism that I’ve dealt with growing up in Kentucky, whether it was at Church Camp or School or just walking down the street and hearing people drive by and yell out racial slurs, I know exactly how it feels,” he wrote.
Tiller continued with, “A lot of us feel like we lost a sister and many of us feel like it was because of racism.…doesn’t feel right at all.”
Shoutout to him for using his platform to demand justice for Breonna Taylor, one of many deaths that hit the Black community hard. Racism in American is still alive and thriving.
