Wiley to Launch National HBCU Debate League

You probably know, by now, that a small black liberal arts college 150 miles east of Dallas once boasted the best debate team in the nation.

The story of that 1935 Wiley College squad toppling the national champs from the University of Southern Cal was the focus of a 2007 movie, The Great Debaters, starring Denzel Washington, who also directed the flick.
