9/25/14 First Amendment Rights discussion with Mary Beth Tinker, of Tinker vs. Des Moines, 5 p.m., Baker Center Ballroom. 

Mary Beth Tinker, one of the plaintiffs in the precedential lawsuit Tinker v. Des Moines, will visit Ohio University to speak to classes and the community about the lawsuit that established free-speech rights for students in schools. Tinker was 13 years old in 1965 when she and her brother wore black armbands to their schools in Des Moines, Iowa, protesting the government’s actions in Vietnam. School officials suspended the Tinkers, saying the armbands disrupted school activities. Her visit is sponsored by the Ohio University chapter of Society of Professional Journalists and the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. Athens activist Arlene Sheak, a friend of Tinker’s, helped arrange the visit.
