Founded in 1968, the Miss Black America pageant is the original competition for young African-American women in areas such as speech, talent, style, and poise. This pageant was founded because women of color were not allowed to compete in the America's mainstream pageant systems. Throughout the years the pageant has featured and garnered the support of some of the most prominent artists, activists, performers of our time including Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Curtis Mayfield, and Oprah Winfrey.

All interested adult participants (18- 29 Years of age) must register as Miss Black America Contestants by applying on line or submitting an application form at an official registration site and paying a $50.00 application fee.
