The march was put together by The Dad Gang, an organization started in 2016 that celebrates Black fatherhood and gives them a safe space to find support.
Founder Sean Willians says he's hoping his platform will set an example for his children.
The group marched from Grand Army Plaza to the Brooklyn Museum. Organizers say they want the event to spread to the rest of the city.
