    Donald Trump's attendance at an opening of a Civil Rights Museum in Mississippi has sparked a boycott.

    Many of them stayed away from the launch, accusing the president of racial division.

    The National Association for the Advancement for Colored People, or NAACP, the most storied civil rights organisation in America, had asked Trump not to come, saying Trump has done nothing to support black Americans as president.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from the city of Jackson.
