Scenes from the Supreme Court

On a chilly Washington day, the University defended affirmative action before the Supreme Court of the United States. Energetic supporters and opponents gathered at the marble steps to witness the historic day. Some slept outside the night before for the chance to sit inside and hear the rapid-fire exchanges between justices and attorneys. U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) (photo 5) was one of many public figures who spoke in support of affirmative action. President Mary Sue Coleman gave numerous interviews, including one to NPR talk show host Tavis Smiley (photo 6).
