During the 2016 Urban Debate League’s National Championship in San Francisco University of California, two black high school seniors made historic mark by winning the debate earlier this month.
According to Yahoo News, Two Africa-American high school female seniors made history during the 2016 Urban Debate League’s National Championship in San Francisco State University in California which took place April 14-17. Tiera Calvin and Tamara Morrison have become the first African-American females to win the debate competition.
“We were the first black women to ever actually win the tournament.” “We embraced the struggle and know that the struggle is what is going to make us strong enough to endure anything that comes with this activity,” Morrison told WXYZ Detroit.
The National Association of Urban Debate Leagues states said “Competitive debate has always been available to students at suburban schools, but twenty years ago it disappeared from more cash-strapped urban public schools,” but now, “Urban debate programs level the playing field, giving urban students access to the same academically rigorous debate programs available to their suburban peers.”
These two University Prep Academy African-American women saw the opportunity, grabbed it and got the fame it comes up it. The opportunity has not ended; current they are preparing for the University of Kentucky to participate in the “Super Bowl” of debates.
Well done women of color! The black people have started rising and showing how bright they are. We hope that the tendency will continue and we will have the positions we deserve.
