The NFAC leader, who calls himself Grandmaster Jay, gave a speech during the event in which he argued that US President Donald Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ slogan doesn’t apply to black people. “I can’t remember a time in this country when it was great for us,” he said, and then led the crowd in chants of “black power.”

The march ended peacefully, but one individual was detained after accidentally discharging his firearm.
Despite being an African American, similarly clad in all black clothing, and carrying a firearm while marching among them, NFAC members told the media that the person involved was not part of their organization.
