I have a question, who better can define you? Black Beauty, You, or someone else?

The *Miss African Diaspora Cultural Beauty Pageant* is the beginning of how we as the melanin people will like to define our own narrative of what beauty really is. There are so many societal norms pushed by the media, that have been trying to define Africans/Blacks across the globe for centuries. This pageant will honor African beauty and culture the way it truly is. This contest is also intended to promote business within the Afrocentric clothing and jewelry industry. Women ages 18-40yrs no longer need to feel insecure or bad about themselves just because of their Afrocentric look or because they are of African descent. Progressive Minds Show would proudly like to present the true African Beauty"
