Alonzo Clemons is able to work part-time at the Y, picking up trash. But a childhood accident left him with a traumatic brain injury. He can't read or write or do math.
And yet, astonishingly, he can sculpt, as naturally as the rest of us breathe.
His meticulous creations fill his Boulder, Colorado, apartment. He's made hundreds of them, all with his bare hands.
