Carlos Taylor, an Evanston Township High School senior, is not only making history in the elite debate world, but he is reshaping the very definition of a successful debater. As the first black student from Evanston to qualify for the prestigious Tournament of Champions, Carlos is competing at a national level and is a top contender in the category of Lincoln-Douglas debate.

Carlos originally competed in Policy debate but has now found his niche in Lincoln-Douglas, a traditional format that emphasizes logic, philosophy, and ethics. As he began traveling for regional and national debate tournaments, it quickly became apparent that white males represent the majority of debaters participating at the high school level.

“Debate is as much about politics and social standings as it is about research and actually debating,” Carlos remarked. His unapologetic style has led him to a qualifying bid in the Tournament of Champions, which brings together some of the most competitively successful debaters from the nation's most prestigious high school debate tournaments.
