My Sorority Sister Deshauna Barber is the NEW Miss USA
Women are so dynamic. Our womanhood is not static. Deshauna Barber wears combat boots and high heels. She is soldier and beauty queen. I'm excited about her future and advancement to the Miss Universe pageant.
I often write about how we rarely see darker-skinned Black women representing beauty. To see this smart, Chocolate complexion Black woman from Washington, DC with the name Deshauna feels good. I heard that the three finalists were women of color. I can't recall watching a Miss USA or Miss Universe and all of the finalists were women of color. Beauty comes in many colors and national pageants are waking up to that.
Tomorrow I will be wearing my crown in honor of our new Miss USA. Visit Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for my photo.
