Top 10 gets new look as Alabama stays at No. 1 in USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll

  Top 10 gets new look as Alabama stays at No. 1 in USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll Alabama remained No. 1 in the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll after a close all against then-No. 9 Florida. There were some changes in the top 10.The top five teams remain the same, led by No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Georgia. The Crimson Tide still have all but one of the 65 first-place votes despite needing to stave off a furious rally at Florida. The Bulldogs, again claiming the last No. 1 vote, had a much easier time with South Carolina in their SEC opener and easily retain the second spot.

Alabama -- one of the Southern states steeped in controversy over the public display of Confederate monuments -- now has a law protecting these and other old landmarks.

The proposal fits new official government policy to “retain and explain” contested statues. Steward’s call has also been endorsed by the mayor of London, who set up a commission for diversity in the public realm in February. A spokesperson for London Labour said: “Sadiq firmly supports a number of new memorials in the capital … he also wants to see new educational programmes to ensure all Londoners learn about the horrors of the slave trade and the role it played in our history.” Kojo Kyerewaa of Black Lives Matter UK told the Observer that removing statues of slavers was not a priority.

"The endeavor is to change the narrative as it relates to the history and how it's portrayed regarding Sims and the women that were used as experiments," Michelle Browder, who created the monument, told the AP. "They're not mentioned in any of the iconography or the information, the markers."

Browder told the AP that she believes the statue is important to reflecting the full history behind medical advancements in gynecology and the sacrifices of Black female slaves.

"No one talks about these women and their sacrifices and the experimentations that they suffered," Browder continued to the AP. "And so I feel that if you're going to tell the truth about this history, we need to tell it all."

New York City officials voted to take down a statue of Sims in Central Park in 2018 and moved it to Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, where Sims is buried.

A statue of the doctor remains at the Alabama State House in Montgomery, according to the AP.
