Thousands of students from across the country are in Washington today where the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear arguments in the University of Michigan affirmative action cases.

Students from more than 200 colleges and universities are expected at today’s pro-affirmative action rally organized by students at Howard University. More than six dozen buses have come from Detroit and Ann Arbor alone. It is expected to be one of the largest civil rights rallies since the 1960s.

And the case before the court is among the most-watched and most-hyped cases in recent history.
