TAPinto Nutley reached out to Nutley for Black Lives to question some rumors floating through town. According to Nutley for Black Lives, neither the march nor the roll out have anything to do with the bust of Christopher Columbus on town hall lawn.
Nutley for Black Lives describes themselves as "A small, hometown organization dedicated to fighting for the #BLACKLIVESMATTER movement and ALL BIPOC."
