Our second national title holder, Miss Black America 1969, Gloria O. Smith

As the nation’s oldest pageant showcase for women of color, there is no better opportunity offered for aspiring young women than the Sisterhood of Miss Black America Pageantry.

For almost 50 years, the Miss Black America organization has paid tribute to the Black woman’s style, grace, beauty, and talent. And today, we remain ever committed to providing a world-class event that celebrates and honors our ethnic values.

With that in mind, our motto is appropriately stated, “Sow the Seeds of Positivity and Reap the Flowers of success.” Our organization and our delegates stand committed to doing our part to strengthen our families, our communities, and ultimately, our country.

We are indeed excited about what’s ahead this year and for many years to come, and look forward to meeting some of our nation’s most outstanding Sisters of Positivity.

The Rebirth reminds America, and the world at large, of the many contributions women of color have made to our society, and what value is yet to be added.

We invite you to join us on this journey, as we set out to uplift and empower our women of color. Let’s get excited about the history, the highlights, and continued heartbeat of Miss Black America.”
