NATIONAL BLACK COLLEGE ALUMNI HALL OF FAME QUEENS

The focus of the Competition of Black College Queens is to provide great opportunities for young women attending our nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and help them better prepare for the future, as well as gain self-awareness, self-confidence, individual pride, pride for their institution and a greater social awareness overall.
