WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will travel to Alabama next week to give a speech about the economy. It’s his second visit to the state this month.

Obama will be in Birmingham on Thursday afternoon. The White House hasn’t released any other details about the trip.

Earlier in March, Obama traveled to Selma, Alabama, to mark the 50th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday.” Obama led a symbolic march across the bridge where throngs who protested their lack of voting rights were beaten by police.

Obama has visited 48 of the 50 states since becoming president. Still awaiting presidential visits are South Dakota and Utah.
