Neighborhoods all over the city know Adam Hollingsworth and his horses.
That could have been him, he thought, or someone he cared about. That was my mother. That was my sister. That was me down there. The lifelong Chicagoan has had his own run-ins with police in the past. Last year, he says he was stopped by police seven times — and ticketed once — while riding his horses in the city. A judge later tossed the ticket, Hollingsworth said. Still, Hollingsworth said he has a positive relationship with many police officers he encounters on his frequent rides. When the initially peaceful Loop protest May 30 turned violent as looters raided storefronts and clashed with policeHollingsworth said his first instinct was to leave.
But he soon realized he could use his visibility to help — both at the scene and online, where he had been streaming the unfolding events on Facebook Live. After hearing gunshots, Hollingsworth found a man who had been shot in an alley and tracked down a police officer to get the man some help. That day, Hollingsworth says, something clicked.
He knew he stood out amid the chaos in his cowboy hat, riding Bella through the Loop, and that his reputation as a community-builder lent credence to his peacekeeping efforts at a time when tensions were high.
In the days following the protest and looting, rumors of rising racial tensions among Latinos and African Americans in Little Village stirred conflict in the neighborhood. Residents, including some gang members, tried to guard local businesses against looting, and there were reports of African Americans being targeted while walking in the neighborhood. Having ridden Prince in Little Village before, Hollingsworth said he received messages from Latino friends and strangers on June 2 asking him to come and show his followers what was really happening.
As he and Prince settled into their ride, Hollingsworth led them off 26th Street and down side streets, all while streaming on Facebook Live. People stopped to say hello and snap photos, and one woman even put out a bowl of water for Prince.
The funds will be used for gas, food for his horses, cleaning supplies, trailer maintenance and other expenses related to the upkeep of the horses, and Hollingsworth hopes to keep inspiring inner-city kids on his tour.
