Tinker v. Des Moines Interpretation

Tinker v. Des Moines Interpretation

This program was produced by youth participants in our Summer Media Institute program at CCTV. Cambridge teenagers produced videos on various topics from music videos to short documentaries. This video tackles a history interpretation of the famous Tinker v. Des Moines lawsuit:

In December 1965, a group of adults and students held a meeting at the Eckhardt home in Des Moines to discuss the publicizing of their objections to the Vietnam War. It was determined at the meeting that they would show their support for a truce by wearing black arm bands during the holiday season. The Tinker and Eckhardt families had participated before in similar activities and decided to again join the protest.
