African American man hugs white nationalist during protest. Gray Hall reports during Action News at 7 a.m. on October 21, 2017. (WPVI)

It was an unusual moment during protests outside a white nationalist's speech at the University of Florida.

Cell phone video shows an African American man hugging a white man wearing a shirt with Nazi swastikas.

Witnesses say the man then talked with the Nazi supporter about why he doesn't like him.

That moment of peace was short lived.

The Nazi supporter was later punched by a random protester.
