A MARCH IN JANUARY: A group of MAC seniors marches from the fine arts buildings to join an estimated crowd of 150-200 students in the band parking lot. The students walked out at the beginning of fourth period today in order to join the Inauguration Day protests in downtown Austin at Auditorium Shores. The walkout was captured by several local media outlets. The demonstration was coordinated by student leaders with bull horns who instructed the crowd as they proceeded to the Capitol Metro bus stop at Koenig and Lamar. Photo by Gregory James.

MacJ co-adviser Dave Winter  chose Gregory James’ image of the student walk out at McCallum in January 2017 to protest Donald Trump’s inauguration as president.

“This image captures a decisive moment,” Winter said. “The students in this photo were organizers of the walkout, and it was at this moment that they emerged out of the fine arts corridor and saw the hundreds of students who had preceded them in arriving at the band parking lot. It was the moment they realized that their efforts to organize the protest had succeeded and that a large number of students would join them in taking the bus downtown to joining the citywide inauguration protest at Auditorium Shores. Whether you agree or disagree with their objective, the sheer joy of success is unmistakable and infectious in this image.”
