Students don't shed their freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate

In the late 60s Mary Beth Tinker and her brother didn't set out to make history when they decided to protest the Vietnam war by wearing black armbands to school. But they did.

Listen to Mary Beth Tinker tell her story and answer U-Higher's questions during this year's first-ever, fully remote Social Justice Week event.
