First time 3 black ladies wear Miss USA, Miss Teen USA and Miss America crowns

Three ladies have recently made history as the first black ladies that will simultaneously wear the crown of three different beauty pageants in the United States of America. They currently wear the crowns of Miss USA, Miss Teen and Miss America.

According to reports by Because OF Them We Can, two of the crowns had been previously won by Miss America Nia Franklin and 2019 Miss Teen USA Kaleigh Garris, before Cheslie Kryst joined them to complete the historic trio after emerging as Miss USA on Thursday, April 2.

It was gathered that Krsyt who completed the trio is a civil litigation attorney with a law degree and MBA from Wake Forest University.

Even more fascinating about the pair of Krsyt and Garris is the fact that they both rocked their natural hairs at their individual pageant competition, and did not go through any form of hair straightening.
