Storyboard Text

  • In 1965, 3 teenagers (Mary Beth Tinker, John Tinker, and Chris Eckhardt)  were suspended from their public high school in Des Moines, Iowa for wearing black armbands in protest of the Vietnam war.
  • The families of these students filed a lawsuit against Des Moines Independent Community School District. Lower courts upheld the school’s decision, and the plaintiffs appealed to the Supreme Court.
  • One of the main questions of the case was if the 1st Amendment covered symbolic speech, or just written and spoken speech.
  • In the end, the Supreme Court ruled that the symbolic armbands were protected under the 1st Amendment. Justice Abe Fortas said “Students in school, as well as out of school, are "persons" under our Constitution. They are possessed of fundamental rights which the State must respect…” 
  • The ruling of the Supreme Court extended the scope of the First Amendment to protect symbolic speech, and established that students do not shed their constitutional rights when they enter their school. 
  • NO MORE WAR!
