On March 13, 2020, Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old woman, was shot and killed by three plainclothes officers executing a no-knock warrant in her apartment in Louisville, KY. We’ve shared her story. We’ve said her name. Now it’s time to prolong her legacy.

Breonna’s case shook Louisville to its core. Driving through Louisville, we see murals, banners, billboards, and other breathtaking works honoring her and other Black lives lost to police brutality. I’ll take you through some of my favorite popular — and lesser known — spots in Louisville honoring Breonna’s life and legacy.

This is Breonna’s Louisville.
