About Miss Black and Old Gold Eastern Region

The Miss Black and Gold Pageant, under the sponsorship of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., is an outgrowth of the long tradition of Alpha Chapters designation outstanding young ladies to serve as "Chapter Sweethearts." The Fraternity recognizes the valuable support rendered to it by the many friends of Alpha Phi Alpha - and this endeavor serves as one mechanism to applaud such support.

For some time, several of the Fraternity's five geographical regions have sponsored Miss Black and Gold Pageants as a part of their conventions. Since the early 1970's, there has been increasing support of these pageants on a national scale.

The first national Miss Black and Gold Pageant was held during Alpha's 1976 General Convention in New York City. Miss Denise Smith, representing Georgia State University, Atlanta, Georgia, was awarded the first crown.

The Pageant was deferred following the first event and reinstated during the Fraternity's 1982 General Convention in Los Angeles, California.
