'Cowboy' Rides Down Chicago Expressway in Support of Local Youth

Chicago man Adam Hollingsworth rode a horse down a major highway, on September 21, to protest children’s exposure to violence.

Hollingsworth, also known as the Dreadhead Cowboy was filmed trotting and cantering his horse down the Dan Ryan Expressway, saying “kids lives matter”.

The protest was aimed at drawing attention to the exposure of children to violence with Hollingsworth previously stating that young children’s voices have rarely been centered during widespread protests in support of black lives.

Hollingsworth was eventually taken into custody and shared footage of himself being detained. Credit: Vashon Jordan Jr/@vashon_photo via Storyful
