22-year-old Caressa Cameron of Fredericksburg, Virginia has become the seventh Black woman in history to be named Miss America.
The Virginia Commonwealth University student took home the crown Saturday beating out Miss California, Miss Tennessee, Miss Louisiana and Miss Kentucky for the title and a $50,000 scholarship.
Her win came as a surprise to some considering that Rush Limbaugh was judging the competition.
Along with Rush, Vivica Fox, jazz musician Dave Koz, Miss America 2002 Katie Harman, gymnast Shawn Johnson and former ‘American Idol’ finalist Brooke White also judged.
Her platform will be on AIDS education.
Other previous Black Miss America’s include Vanessa Williams who was replaced by another Black woman, Suzette Charles.
Following that Debbye Turner was crowned followed by Marjorie Vincent, Kimberly Aiken, Erika Harold and Ericka Dunlap.
Congratulations to her.
Can you believe she’s only the seventh Black Miss America in history?
