ArtNews editor Alex Greenberger covers Vanity Fair's highly anticipated September 2020 issue, which honors Breonna Taylor with a portrait by artist Amy Sherald. Taylor was killed by police in Louisville, Kentucky, in March during a raid on her home. The September issue, which will be edited by author Ta-Nehisi Coates, also contains photographs of Taylor’s family members by LaToya Ruby Frazier.
