Enjoy an afternoon of inspiration and cultural entertainment at the Indianapolis Public Library’s annual Fall Fest and Slammin’ Rhymes Challenge on Saturday, November 19. The event includes a featured guest speaker, local performances, and readings by winners of the Slammin’ Rhymes Challenge.

Fall Fest will take place from noon-4 pm at the Central Library and features special guest, Kevin Richardson, a member of the exonerated Central Park 5. 

When 14-year-old Kevin Richardson 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.
