    The scars on my face tell me a story every day. A story of how a sweet 12-year old girl and her 14-year old sister Addie giggled as they walked to church on a Sunday morning. How they met their friends Cynthia, Carol and Carole before the service. How they heard a sound—BOOM—and four of them were dead. It was 1963 and some men from the Ku Klux Klan had set a bomb at the 16th Street Church in Birmingham, Alabama, in the hope that it would kill Black people. It did. My sister and our three friends died. Doctors pulled 22 shards of glass from my face and debris from my eyes. They eventually had to remove my right...

    Alabama football alums like Josh Jacobs and Julio Jones starred in Week 1.Week 1 of 2020 NFL action saw many Alabama football alums star on the professional gridiron.

    Hurricane Sally has crashed into the southern US in slow motion, bringing torrential rain and storm surges, smashing boats and breaking bridges. It made landfall as a Category 2 and although now a tropical storm, its glacial pace means there are still warnings of danger to life.

At 16:00 local time (21:00 GMT), Sally was 55 miles (88km) north of Pensacola and close to the Alabama border. Its 7mph speed in a north-easterly direction is almost a sprint - at one point it was 3mph. Sally made landfall at Gulf Shores, Alabama,...

    WAVELAND, Miss. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The path of slow-moving Hurricane Sally is hard to predict but the storm, packing winds of 85 mph, continues to creep toward the northern Gulf Coast.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — People paid great heed to John Lewis for much of his life in the civil rights movement. But at the very beginning — when he was just a kid wanting to be a minister someday — his audience didn’t care much for what he had to say. A son of Alabama sharecroppers, the young Lewis first preached moral righteousness to his family’s chickens. His place in the vanguard of the 1960s campaign for Black equality had its roots in that hardscrabble Alabama farm. Lewis, who died Friday at age 80, was the youngest and last survivor of the Big Six civil rights activists who organized the 1963 March on Washington, and spoke shortly before the group’s leader,...

    WASHINGTON - John Robert Lewis, a champion of civil rights for African Americans and longtime U.S. lawmaker, has died. He was 80.

    A document prepared for the White House coronavirus task force and obtained by the Center for Public Integrity says 18 states are in the “red zone” for new cases and suggests hard-hit areas should take steps to roll back reopening phases such as closing bars and gyms.  The document lays out specific recommendations for each state in more detail than Trump administration officials have given publicly. Among the notable recommendations are for counties in the “red zone” to close bars and gyms and to limit gatherings to 10 people or fewer. Bars and gyms currently remain open across many hard-hit states, with some governors saying they do not want to take further actions to restrict businesses and damage the economy....

    Former senator and disgraced former Attorney General Jeff Sessions has finally come, at age 73, to what is almost certainly the end of the road for his villainous political career. On Tuesday night, the right-wing Republican who served as a U.S. senator from 1997 to 2017 lost in his comeback attempt, defeated in the Republican primary for his old seat by Tommy Tuberville, a man whose cartoonish name better suited his previous career as head football coach at Auburn. The runoff election between the two wasn’t even close, with the Riverboat Gambler (a silly and self-serious nickname for Tuberville, especially when “The Tubz” was right there for the taking) taking more than 60% of the vote. It’s tempting, since we’re talking about Alabama, to believe that the...
