Helen Keller statue tours Alabama

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A replica of the Helen Keller statue that is on display at the U.S. Capitol is making its way through Alabama. For the next few weeks, it will be at the Birmingham Museum of Art.

The statue depicts the moment Keller understood the difference between objects and words.

Each state has a statue to represent their state in the U.S. Capitol's Statuary Hall.

This replica will tour the state until December, finally stopping in the capitol in Montgomery.
