  • Views: 334 Deadline NOW: Mary Beth Tinker

    Friday, May 15, 2009

    Mary Beth Tinker was 13 years old in 1965 when she and a group of students wore black armbands to school to protest the war in Vietnam. When she refused school administrators' requests to remove the armband, she was sent home. Four other students were suspended as well.

    The incident resulted in a four-year court battle that culminated in the landmark Supreme Court case Tinker v. Des Moines. On February 24, 1969, the Court ruled 7-2 that students do not "shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate." Today, Mary Beth Tinker, a registered nurse, is dedicated to educating young people about their constitutional rights.

    Susan Carter, a member of the Board of Directors for the Ohio ACLU, joins Ms. Tinker on this episode of Deadline NOW.
