Black Girl Pageant Magic!

History was made on the biggest beauty pageant stages this week… for the first time ever, three black women hold the titles of Miss America, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA… and two of them did it rocking their natural curls!

Congratulations to 2019 Miss Teen USA Kaliegh Garris (Miss Teen Connecticut), Miss America Nia Franklin (Miss New York) and Miss USA Chelsie Kryst (Miss North Carolina), who was just crowned on Thursday and will represent our country in the Miss Universe pageant.

Not only are they all beautiful in their own ways, but they're also smart and accomplished too... as well as helping each other. Chelsie just so happens to be Nia's attorney... the world found that out when Nia tweeted out her congratulations to her long time friend and colleague. (Thanks to ABC7's Hosea Sanders for that tidbit last night!)

And THAT'S what you call Black Girl Pageant Magic!
