May 2017 Press Release


Since its inception in 1982, the Pageant was evolved and had undergone a metamorphosis of name changes. In 1992, the Pageant was incorporated with a non-profit status and will henceforth be known as MISS BLACK OHIO. In 2001, Fanchon C. Kent, Miss Black Ohio 1997 title holder, assumed the role to become the new CEO/President.



Our objective is to mentor young ladies in particular those first generation college bound students. Our goal is to prevent early teen pregnancy in the State of Ohio among African American Teens and to educate them on the high risk of HIV within our community. It is our purpose to assist them in attaining skills, personal development and the creation of good habits. We believe that this inspiration will empower them to become confident, educated, and esteemed young women.


Our mission is to empower our female youth through pageantry  


Our vision is to reach our female youth ages 9-25 residing in the State of Ohio to build their self-esteem through our pageant and developmental workshops.
