14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
A protest at Speaker's Circle in Columbia, MO after the day after the 2016 presidential election.

This Mizzou student decided to protest at Speaker's Circle the day after Trump was elected the United States President. A quote from him is the best way to put the photo in context: “I guess right after it happened I just couldn’t really believe it. I hadn’t really even considered the possibility. This morning I woke up and felt like I was in shellshock. I just felt like I had to do something. Disbelief is the best way to describe it. I thought it was going to turn back around — the red states are first, and then it will turn around. But then it just kept going.”
