Miss Universe offers us the opportunity to see the beauty represented all over the world. It is one of the only multicultural shows that allows us to witness women display their philanthropic efforts, talents and undeniable poise. Are all these women gorgeous? Absolutely! But in the words of Issa Rae, ā€œIā€™m rooting for everyone black.ā€

Despite Donald Trumps efforts to mute the diversity in the Miss Universe Pageant, women of color showed up and showed out. Melanin of all shades were visible. Representation matters. From short, natural afros to loose curls, diversity was present. Let’s take a look at the women who represented us at the 2018 Miss Universe Pageant.
