S3E5 – P-R-E-J-U-D-I-C-E

Last week, 291 elementary and middle schoolers from all over the world descended upon National Harbor, Maryland for one of the United States’s most time-honored and spellbinding competitions–the Scripp’s National Spelling Bee. In the end Ananya Vinay walked away with the prize. She’s the thirteenth straight Indian-American to win the National Spelling Bee, a fact that would’ve sent 1908 New Orleans into a serious rage.

This is the story of Marie Chavous Bolden, champion speller, and an example of black greatness.
