The A. H. Parker statue is a life-size sculpture of former Industrial High School principal Arthur Harold Parker, unveiled in front of the school which now bears his name on Sunday, August 18, 2013.

The statue was commissioned by the Parker United National Alumni Society for display in the lobby of the renovated school, but was ultimately placed on a pedestal on the front lawn of the building, surrounded by a wrought iron fence to protect it from vandalism. In 2015 new Birmingham City Schools superintendent Kelley Castlin-Gacutan directed the fence, which gave the appearance of a cage, to be removed.
