Kristen Elizabeth White of Georgia has been crowned Miss Black USA. Receiving the crown following a seven-day competition between 50 women in Las Vegas last month, she remained hunched over praying as people handed her flowers. Among the dozens of elegant women, her beauty, poise, grace, talent and the full support of her family gave her the edge.

“Oh my God, I’m just so humbled. I was in this competition with some of the most prolific outstanding women I have ever encountered in my 27 years on this earth. And so I’m definitely honored; I look forward to taking this crown and representing my sisters well,” White said.

For more than 20 years, the Miss Black USA organization has recognized the accomplishments of outstanding African American women and celebrated women in mind, body and spirit. This includes celebrating scholastic achievement and the belief that education is the key to success.
