According to a profile by Detroit’s WXYZ, the two young women face a male-dominated debate world that has not seen a lot of gender or racial diversity until now.
Their win in San Francisco qualified the two women for the Tournament of Champions at the University of Kentucky on April 30.
“The Tournament of Champions is the Super Bowl of debates,” said debate team coach Sharon Hopkins.
“I want to get into finals and I want to win,” said Colvin.
“We’re doing the hard work and doing the preparations to make sure that becomes reality,” said Morrison.
The team is asking people to help fund the expensive trip and cover other expenses. Donate at.
“The donations will be very helpful,” said Camille Hibbler, principal of University Prep Academy.
