Prepare to be wowed! Photographer Raphael Albert has opened up his archives and is sharing a collection of his awe-inspring photographs of black beauty pageants in the UK from the 1960s, '70s and '80s. The beautiful images are being fetured at an Autograph ABP exhibit in London called "Miss Black and Beautiful." While we've never needed pagaents to tell us that "black is beautiful" -- it never hurts putting our extraordinary beauty and style on display. Here's a look at Albert's amazing photos...
