Museum Mixolgy: Florida's Black Beauties
Florida's Black Beauties: The Intersection of Politics, Protest and Pageants

Illustrated by a collection of oral histories from African American women beauty contestants and winners, this presentation will unpack how pageantry has functioned as a mechanism for political activism throughout the nation's most intense social movements and how traditional beauty standards continue to unravel as calls for social justice escalate.

With a terminal degree in United States History from Howard University, Dr. Kimberly Brown Pellum specializes in the history of women's images, southern culture, and the Black Freedom Struggle. Her contributions to publicly accessible history include work at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History, The Rosa Parks Museum, and GOOGLE's Arts & Culture series. She is the director of the digital archives project TheMuseumofBlackBeauty.com and serves as a member of the history faculty at Florida A&M University.
