Since its inception in 1983 during the second National Black Deaf Advocates Conference in Philadelphia, PA, the pageant has crowned more than 20 Miss Black Deaf America winners.
In addition to the competition, the MBDAP program also promotes young ladies with education and leadership opportunities for their professional and personal growth and prepares them to be role models for today’s young girls.
