On Sunday, June 28, about 200 skateboarders, roller skaters and bikers gathered at the skate park in Rand park to do a loop around Montclair in “protest against oppressive/racist policing policies” and “to showcase and appreciate Blackness within skateboarding.”

The event, planned by the loose organization of New Jersey skaters known as Unofficial, drew people from all over Essex County.
