April 20, 1978 rally is scheduled

On February 23, 1978, Judge Bernard Decker of the U.S. District Court of Illinois rules that the three ordinances adopted by the Skokie Village Board are unconstitutional (Collin v. Smith, 447 F.Supp 676).

Frank Collin announces a National Socialist Party of America (NSPA) rally for April 20, 1978 to coincide with Adolf Hitler's birthday.

Plans are made to counter the April 20 NSPA rally.

More opinions roll in from across the country.

Frank Collin and the NSPA do not hold a rally in Skokie on April 20, 1978.
