Two African American Atlanta-area high school students led their debate team to its second consecutive win at Harvard University’s annual international debate tournament—making history after achieving an unprecedented, undefeated record, according to a press release on the matter.
Seniors DJ Roman of North Atlanta High School and Keith Harris of Westlake High School clinched the win for their debate team in the championship round. The pair, who had no prior debate experience, bested scholars from 15 different countries in the tournament.
The two young men and their teammates spent 10 months prepping for the debate tournament. They were guided by Brandon P. Fleming, Harvard’s assistant debate coach, as part of the Harvard Diversity Project.
