Now, we are not a big fan of beauty contests. Really, are we still having women strut up and down a stage while we look at them like fresh meat?
But if we must have one of these things, then we’re glad to see some #BlackGirlMagic take center stage.
This past Sunday, Miss South Africa Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters was crowned Miss Universe. But you know who (almost) stole the show? Miss Jamaica Davina Bennett, who came in 3rd. But in our eyes, her and her glorious afro came in first.
Davina’s embrace of her natural hair won her an overwhelming support on social media and started the hashtag, “#MissJamaicaShouldHaveWon.”

We hope to see more of the afro queen in the days and years to come.
