September 16, 2020
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The city of Louisville agreed to pay $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor and reform police practices as part of a settlement announced Tuesday, months after Taylor's slaying by police thrust the Black woman's name to the forefront of a national reckoning on race.
But Taylor's mother and others who have taken up her cause said more must be done to right the wrongs of racial injustice in America.
"Please continue to say her name," Taylor's mother, Tamika Palmer, declared at an emotional news conference, evoking the call that has become a national refrain for those outraged by the shooting and police violence.
