The Senate Series or Senate Avenue Series highlights the impact and legacy of the Senate Avenue YMCA here in Indianapolis. The Senate Avenue YMCA grew to become the largest Black YMCA in the country. This Y was known for their "Monster Meetings", which called on our nation's most iconic figures to address to the Indianapolis community.
