Sophistication, style and class surround a royal event you don’t want to miss when the second annual Miss Juneteenth Oregon Pageant takes place on Saturday, June 8 at 4:30 p.m. at Self-Enhancement, Inc., 3920 N. Kerby Ave.
The evening will feature elegant gowns, a talent competition, and on-stage questions, but the most important purpose of the pageant, according to organizer Octavia Chambers, is to “foster sisterhood, build confidence and provide space for black girls to shine as their true authentic self, whatever that means for each of them.”
Arya Morman, Miss Black Oregon US Ambassador 2019 and Marneet Lewis, Ms. Global United 2018-19, and other special guests will be in attendance. The current Miss Juneteenth Oregon, Sierra Boyne, will crown the new pageant winner and present her with a $500 scholarship thanks to sponsor Above The Fray Design.
