The Miss Black Cincinnati & Miss Black Teen Cincinnati Pageants

RLH Pageants Unlimited and Cincinnati Black Theatre Company are pleased to announce the return of both the Miss Black Cincinnati and Miss Black Teen Cincinnati pageants, an event worthy of your (or company name compy or organizations) financial support. The event is a much anticipated momentous celebration as each organization will celebrate milestone anniversaries, the 42nd Anniversary for MBC and the 32nd for MBTC.

The Founder and Executive Producer of RLH Pageants Unlimited is a community leader and philanthropist Robert L Humphries. The mission of his ministry was then and remains the same today to create an African American beauty pageant for teens (13-17) and young women (17-24). The focus is to develop life skills, professionalism, inner beauty, character, and the necessity to give back through community engagement.

Mr. H, as he is affectionately known, along with his wife Jackie Humphries and a host of long-standing staff of volunteers, supporters, and sponsors, have contributed to the lives of over 1000 teens and young African American women on their journey to success.

A critical factor to the Pageant's popularity, quality, and longevity is forging partnerships within the tri-state. One such pairing occurred twenty years ago when Cincinnati Black Theatre Company, under the leadership of Executive Director Donald Sherman, assumed the role of directing the pageants,

Mr. Sherman is now the Associate Producer, assuming an even more prominent role as the Pageant is now under the non-profit umbrella of the Cincinnati Black Theatre Company.

The heart of the pageants is its contestants. The reigning Miss Black Cincinnati is Arah Samuels, a graduate of Northern Kentucky University with a degree in Music. She is currently teaching for Cincinnati Preparatory Academy. A goal she shared during her Pageant competition.

Miss Black Teen Cincinnati, Jayla Bolt, attends the Creative and Performing Arts School. She made history; she is the youngest contestant for MBTC. She and her mother, Angela Grayson Miss Black Cincinnati, 1995, are the only mother and daughter to hold titles, another history making moment.

On Saturday, May 21, 2022, the anniversary pageant's start time is 2:00 pm at Corinthian Baptist Church located at 1920 Tennessee Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45237.

We look forward to celebrating the partnership forged through your tax-deductible financial support. Enclosed is the Community Partnership Benefits sheet for your review information. As a trusted organization with a proven track record for community outreach, this event is worthy of your involvement.
