Spike Lee leads gun violence protest after 'Chi-Raq' premiere

Instead of holding an after party following the premiere of his new film, 'Chi-Raq,' Spike Lee held an anti-gun violence march.



Lee was joined by the Rev. Al Sharpton and more than 15 activists.



The group marched from a Midtown theater to Times Square.



Many wore orange beanies, the color symbolizing gun violence awareness.



Lee's new film explores inner city violence throughout Chicago.
