For the first time, #MissUSA, #MissTeenUSA, and #MissAmerica are black women! This is an exciting and historic moment, as well as amazing representation for little girls. I am especially thrilled that two of the winners were crowned rocking natural hair. Two years ago, I had a short story named Crowned published by the YA Review Network. The story followed a teen named Robyn who wanted in a mainstream pageant with a fro. I wrote the story because when I competed in pageantry, it was nearly unheard of for an African-American contestant to win wearing natural hair. But since publication, I have reposted the link every time this happens, which is increasing in frequency. It's exciting to witness the shift and I can't wait to see where it goes. Congratulations to all the winners! To read Crowned, check out the link in the bio and here: http://bit.ly/2reM8IT
Very excited to be interviewed by Minorities in Publishing! @jbakernyc and I spoke about @theblazingstar , about creating a realistic and mindful historical YA novel with Black protagonists, inspiration from my pageant background for my short story Crowned, and my trajectory as an author. 📚 Link in bio and here: bit.ly/2S4Fu4m
