Event Details

Join the Indianapolis Public Library on Saturday, November 19 from 12 – 4 p.m. at Central Library for the 2022 Fall Fest! Our special guest is Kevin Richardson – The Central Park 5.

When 14-year-old Kevin Richardson, a member of the Exonerated Five, entered New York City’s Central Park on a spring evening in 1989, he had a child’s concerns. The eighth-grade student was arrested on his way home that night alongside four other Black and Hispanic teens and faced a nightmarish journey through the criminal justice system. The youths, known as the Central Park Five, spent day after day, year after year, in custody for a brutal crime they did not commit.

Fall Fest will feature performances by:

  • Indianapolis Breakdancer Pep-C
  • Headbangers Kickboxing Academy LLC
  • Natural Measures Trampoline Super Sessions
  • Deckademics DJ School
  • Eric Saunders, the Green Eyed Bandit, Poet
