What to know before you go:
🌟 To date, eight variant strain cases of the COVID-19 B.1.1.7 variant have been found in Alabama. The good news is the COVID-19 vaccine is proven effective against this variant—see how you can make an appointment here.
🌟 Well, color us purple. And red and pink and green and every other one that lies on a rainbow because murals are miraculously appearing around Birmingham. See a community project in Bluff Park and a special installment at the Valley Hotel.
🌟 Our team needs to learn a thing or two about interviews, because Oprah Winfrey skillfully conducted one of the best we’ve ever seen. Oprah led an emotional and jaw-dropping interview with Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex Sunday night. We knew they liked to drink tea in London, but enough was spilled here to flood Buckingham Palace.
