INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) – Several prominent cultural leaders are in Indianapolis, exploring the city’s role in African-American history.

The group is here for the annual Association for the Study of African American Life and History conference.

On Thursday, they stopped by Kennedy King Memorial Park.

The sculpture marks the place where Robert Kennedy told a crowd about the assassination of Martin Luther King Junior.

“For the city to have made a park and a center to continue to convene people in this space, and for it to serve the youth as a park, to serve as a playground for the children is the kind of thing we love to see and love to experience,” said John W. Franklin, External Affairs, National Museum of African American History and Culture

The group always visits important locations in African-American history when they stop in cities.
