The National Symposium for Debate jettisoned the traditional, lecture-based, resolutional analysis lecture and replaced it with an online discussion. In this video, three NSD staffers- Bob Overing, Daiya Massac, and Ryan Teehan- discuss their thoughts on the 2014 institute topic: Resolved: Justice requires reparations to Black Americans. Students, you should not view this discussion as a lecture, but rather as a springboard for some of your own ideas for cases for camp. Although it is not required for you to have cases by the start of camp, it is recommended that you at least begin researching the topic before you arrive.
