As reported on CNN and the San Jose Mercury News, a group of San Jose State journalism students took a 10-day road trip through the South to visit several landmarks of the civil rights movement before finishing at the inauguration on January 20.

These are some of my friends, and I saw them as they came back to school utterly exhausted and simultaneously excited. Their stories have been bubbling out of their mouths long after their official storytelling projects were finished.

They’ve been maintaining an excellent blog of their journeys, where these amazing photographs came from, and the professor has been keeping tabs on the students’ appearances in the media here.

The Spartan Daily also published the students’ video here.
