Safiya Songhai, Miss Black United States
The Miss Black United States Program identifies the queen in each of us, cultivates it, and celebrates it.
A queen is a woman, or something personified as a woman, that is foremost or preeminent in any respect. They are leaders and accomplished by their own right. Queens come in all shapes, sizes, & backgrounds; and do not necessarily wear a crown. Nevertheless, they reign. We honor and celebrate all of our Black Queens and thank them for their legacy, their opened doors, and their commitment to empowering themselves and our community.
What We Do
Pillars of Empowerment
A cultural, enrichment program, the Miss Black United States Program believes in investing in people; encouraging and empowering individuals to become their best ‘self’ while instilling self-esteem and confidence, and fostering growth through the pursuit of their greatest desires. We recognize the trivial pursuit of capturing the crown, but harvest the unlimited potential that flourishes from the small seeds we plant. By striving for something much greater than our hearts could ever imagine, we blossom through pageantry. Investing in people means we are investing in our future. By strengthening smaller American communities, we strengthen a greater America.
- Cultural Pride
The Miss Black United States Program believes that it has discovered the art of maximizing potential. A full service, empowerment organization and social enterprise, we combine the principles of beauty, self-development, charity, and entrepreneurship.
Refining young ladies with grace, poise, and elegance.
Instilling self-discipline, character, good health, and effective communication.
Encouraging selflessness, volunteerism, service, and empathy.
Supporting business leadership, financial literacy, and social enterprises.
