Madison Webb First Black Female Student and Christian Flournoy Youngest Black Male Student To Win 3rd Consecutive Harvard Debate Competition

For the third year in a row, a team of African American students known as The Atlanta Great Debaters, defended and won the championship title for the international Harvard debate competition.

Held virtually this year because of COVID-19, they competed against students from more than 25 countries.

Every year, Harvard Diversity Project recruits a cohort of talented Black youth out of an applicant pool of hundreds throughout Metro Atlanta. The program seeks students that have never been exposed to acdemic debate.
