On 9 July 2021 The Associated Press reported: The nation's first African American winner has breezed to victory at the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Zaila Avant-garde understood the significance of what she was doing as she stood on the Scripps National Spelling Bee stage ... Zaila knew she would be the first African American winner of the bee.

Zaila only started a few years ago, after her father, Jawara Spacetime, watched the bee on TV and realized his daughter's affinity for doing complicated math in her head could translate well to spelling. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of education, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
