Hundreds of people marched down the Grand Concourse in support of the Black Lives Matter movement Sunday.
The local organization 'Until Freedom' led the walk from Fordham Road to 161st Street. The social justice organization does work to address systematic and racial injustice.
Activists, community members and local officials joined in on the march, including Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
The demonstrators chanted, "I'm black and I'm proud" and "No justice, no peace." 
"It's time that people realize that the color of our skin is not a sin, so people need to get together and understand that things need to change and change is here and happening now. This a global movement, Black Lives Matter," says protester Sarah Delaney.
Protesters say they plan on marching until justice has been served.
