This peace-sign armband was worn by members of the Tinker family to protest the Vietnam War. John and Mary Beth Tinker wore their armbands to public school but were suspended after refusing to remove them. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of a student’s right to free speech, as long as it does not disrupt the classroom.
