Miss Black USA


 Twenty years ago, Karen Arrington had a dream of starting an educational scholarship program for young women of color. Now in its 20th year, the Miss Black USA Pageant has fulfilled that dream, launching young women into educational scholarships and careers in business, education, broadcasting, design, and dozens of other fields.

This year the Miss Black USA program is celebrating its 20th anniversary with an historic event: it will take place in the
Gambia, West Africa. As a result, more than 40 young women from across the United States will have a chance to return to their roots and discover their cultural heritage. 

The pageant’s mission is to provide educational opportunity to young women of color and develop the whole woman—mind, body, and spirit.   

In an effort to raise awareness of diabetes, the #1 disease affecting the people of  The Gambia, the Miss Black U.S.A. Pageant is sponsoring the Gambia Diabetes Awareness Campaign in conjunction with the national pageant.  

For more information, contact Karen Arrington, the pageant’s founder, at 240/603-5905 or or visit
