Some are questioning the appropriateness of slavery-era action figures tied to Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained.''
A line of figures of the movie's main characters are on sale online, made by toy-maker NECA in partnership with the Weinstein Co.
On Tuesday, the director of the advocacy group Project Islamic Hope will hold a press conference with other Los Angeles black community leaders to call for the removal of the toys from the market.
Najee Ali calls the action figures ``a slap in the face of our ancestors'' that ``trivializes the horrors of slavery.''
The Weinstein Co. and NECA didn't immediately comment Tuesday.
