We pride our self in having the requirement that each contestant must wear their Natural Hair the day of the Pageant. Besides raw beauty, we seek those who inspire to be a rising voice in the community. Someone who will run with such platform and bring more awareness in the way African-American beauty is portrayed.

Each competitor has the opportunity to partake in educational forums and events that focus on the importance of health, self-esteem, giving back, the enlightenment of one’s true beauty, and other major issues plaguing the African-American community.
