In it, the man known as D. Allen Sadler, stands blindfolded on a busy sidewalk in Montgomery, Alabama, next to a sign that says,
"You do not have to fear me! I count … U count …. We count! I trust u, do u trust me? Let's hug."
Many of the citizens of Montgomery embraced Sadler, though he never removed his blindfold to see exactly who was doing the hugging.
"Just 50 years ago this simple act of LOVE would have probably had me hanging from a tree," Sadler wrote in Facebook. "It's not the same old South … Love will win over fear."
