My wife and friends were visiting from out-of-town and toured Kelly Ingram Park. The overall history was fascinating to learn. We recommend the self-downloaded audio to listen to the detail description of each station. We were awed by what we saw. Good place to visit.

The park features sculptures recounting Birmingham's place in the Civil Rights history. It was an excellent idea by whomever curated these installations to also provide the option to call a number for explanation. Extremely moving!
