Kennedy-King

Kennedy-King, home to just over 1,000 residents, is a quiet and unique neighborhood and one of the fastest-growing urban populations in Indianapolis. It is a key area for the redevelopment of homes and commercial space. The Kennedy-King community dates back to the 1800s and is rich in both architectural and American history.

Born out of tragedy, the name Kennedy-King pays tribute to the powerful speech given by Robert Kennedy in the wake of Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination. Kennedy was scheduled to give a campaign speech in Indianapolis, but instead, delivered words of encouragement to a city broken from the devastating news. Motivating all in attendance, Kennedy inspired a neighborhood and city to continue in its fight for peace, love, and equality.

Those that call Kennedy-King home take an active role in upholding Kennedy’s values by promoting diversity, wellness, and growth. They strive to create and maintain a safe and inviting neighborhood, give a voice to the community, and develop connectedness amongst neighbors. To accomplish this, Kennedy-King holds monthly meetings to discuss events, issues, and concerns. They also take part in frequent neighborhood clean-ups and recently took second place in a neighborhood clean-up competition.

Found in this community are some robust local business and organizations, including Arts for Learning. It is understandable that this nonprofit is located in Kennedy-King since they share similar values. The programs at Arts for Learning connect Indiana students with professional artists, allowing kids to engage in empowering art-related activities and experiences to spark their curiosity and stimulate their minds.
