Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) on Sunday celebrated the historic beauty pageant victories of three black women in a Saturday Instagram post. 

“For the first time in history, Miss America, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA are all Black women,” she wrote. “What a tremendous moment for these young, successful women making their own path, on their own terms.”

“Truly amazing to see. Nia, Cheslie, and Kaliegh: you are trailblazers, creating your own path on your own terms. Congratulations!” she added. 

 

Kryst, 28, expressed support for the “Me Too” and “Time’s Up” movements while answering questions during the pageant. 

Harris is among more than 20 people running for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.
