Zaila Avant-garde becomes first African American to win Scripps Spelling Bee



Zaila Avant-garde, a 14-year-old eighth grader from Harvey, La., smiled and twirled her way to the 2021 Scripps National Spelling Bee championship Thursday, becoming the first African American winner in the spelling competition's 96-year history, and the second Black champion ever following Jamaican-born Jody Anne-Maxwell's win in 1998.

What ever you've done, you can no longer post to the kitchen table
It's been a good while, but this place has always been home. Thankful to be here.
Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
