Good afternoon from Janet Hall in the FOX6 Newsroom.  Here are some of the stories we're working on today.

Abuse of inmates at Tutwiler.

FOX6 News has obtained new information on evidence of sexual violence and poor conditions at Tutwiler Prison for Women. It involves officers using sexual violence against inmates. We'll have a team report from Max Reiss in Montgomery and Beth Shelburne in Birmingham. That's coming up tonight at 5, 5:30 and 6.

Tribute to foot soldiers.

Plans are in the works for a major tribute to foot soldiers in Birmingham's Civil Rights movement. Mayor William Bell announced that there will be a national design competition to find the best idea. We'll have the full story at 5.

Artists on the Bluff.

An old elementary school in Hoover is turned into a clearing house for artists. It's an amazing, creative spot in Bluff Park. Tonight at 6 Fred Hunter shows us why it is Absolutely Alabama.

I hope you'll join us for 90 minutes of news beginning at 5:00 on FOX6. Stay in touch all day with MyFoxAL.com or follow us on Facebook and Twitter @myfoxal.
