The 50th Anniversary of the Tinker v. Des Moines Schools Decision Event Question Submission
Mary Beth Tinker was a 13-year-old junior high school student in December 1965 when she, her brother John, 15, and a group of Iowa students wore black armbands to school to protest the war in Vietnam. That decision led the students and their families to embark on a four-year court battle that culminated in the landmark 1969 U.S. Supreme Court decision for student free speech: Tinker v. Des Moines Independent School District.

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision, Iowa Public Television will be live streaming a presentation and Q&A with Mary Beth and John Tinker as they reflect on the case and its impact. Presented live from the State Historical Museum of Iowa, the program will begin at 12:30pm Central Time on Friday, February 22, 2019.

Students and teachers are encouraged to submit questions to be considered for the Q&A with Mary Beth and John Tinker via twitter using the hashtag #tinkerversary or by completing the form below.
