The Miss Black Louisiana US Organization was founded in 2000. The first Miss Black Louisiana US was crowned on December 8, 2001. This pageant organization was designed to provide educational scholarship opportunities for young women of all ages and diverse cultures in the state of Louisiana.

Our organization is dedicated to supporting education, encouraging community service and providing a forum for young African American women to express their talents, intelligence and opinions on issues facing our world today. The Miss Black Louisiana US organization does not discriminate against any race. Any race is welcomed to participate in the pageant.
