13-year-old Mary Beth Tinker made history in 1965 when she decided to exercise her 1st Amendment rights by wearing a black armband to mourn those killed in the Vietnam War. Mary Beth was expelled. After four years of heated school board meetings and death threats, the Supreme Court ruled in her favor, setting a new bar for students' right to free expression.  She will tell the story of her landmark Supreme Court case, which set the high water mark by which most other student First Amendment cases are judged, and she will urge students to use their rights to speak out about today?s pressing issues.
