Essence featured three Black women on its digital cover after they made history this year by becoming Miss USA, Miss Teen USA and Miss America.
The cover shoot, titled “Culture Crowns,” celebrated 2019′s Miss USA Cheslie Kryst, Miss Teen USA Kaliegh Garris and Miss America Nia Imani Franklin. Their wins marked the first time Black women have held all three reigning titles.
“Welcome to the era where Black women reign supreme!” the magazine tweeted Thursday.
