‘History was made last night. For the first time in history, the titleholders of the most prestigious beauty pageants in the world are all BLACK WOMEN!! We cannot be or exist without recognizing the women who opened those doors for us to come after,’ Kenya began her post.
She continued and mentioned other amazing ladies in the same post: ‘1977 Janelle Commissiong 1stBlack woman to win Miss Universe from Trinidad and Tobago 1984 Vanessa Williams was crowned the first Black woman to ever win Miss America 1990 Carole Gist was the first Black Woman to be crowned Miss USA.’
