Wiley College in Marshall, Texas, will debate Harvard University on Friday, Jan. 25, in an exhibition match on Wiley’s campus. The debate is a nod to the 2007 Denzel Washington film “The Great Debaters” that depicted the success of Wiley’s debate team in 1935. In the film, Wiley takes down Harvard.

Wiley College senior Chad Mossman of Houston is preparing for a three-week mission trip to Nairobi, Kenya. He's developing an internship that will create more connections between non-governmental organizations in rural Kenya and Wiley, a historically black college in Marshall, Texas.
