50th Anniversary Events for Tinker vs Des Moines Board of Education

Sponsored by ACLU of Iowa, one of the activities will be on CSPAN...

During the Vietnam War, 13-year-old Mary Beth and 16-year-old John Tinker were suspended from their Des Moines schools for wearing black armbands to protest the war. With the help of the ACLU of Iowa, they sued and changed the course of student free speech forever.

On February 24, 1969, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its landmark decision in Tinker v. Des Moines. As the Court famously wrote, a student's freedom of expression should not end at the schoolhouse gate.

Now Mary Beth and John will be back in Iowa to celebrate with a series of events in public schools, colleges, and more. Join us for an event near you!
