Dr. Boyce: Nomalanga Mhlauli-Moses Discusses Her Performance at the Mrs. Earth Pageant

In this video, I speak with Nomalanga Mhlauli-Moses, a Your Black World contributor and reigning Mrs. Botswana.  Nomalanga just competed in the Mrs. Earth pageant, getting a strong third place finish and also winning the director’s award.  What I respect about Nomalanga is that she is not only a highly successful woman of color, but she is also seeking to give back in very meaningful ways.

Nomalanga mentors young women at the college level, she also gives black women tips on how to be successful in family, relationships and career.  Finally, she is not afraid to use her voice in a strong and active way to fight for the things that she believes in.

Last year, Nomalanga vocalized the concerns of black participants in the Mrs. World pageant over the fact that no black women made the finals or were selected as judges.  In fact, she revealed that throughout the entire history of the pageant, no black woman has ever won. These words led to controversy, but it drew attention to what some might consider to be blatant racism on behalf of pageant organizers.  While Noma may never be invited to compete for Mrs. World again, her courageous sacrifice will likely cause pageant organizers to be a bit more thoughtful about their selections.

I interview Noma in the video below.  Check it out.

  1. We have so many fabulously beautiful intelligent accomplished black women, and yet this troll was selected to be in the competition???? And she had the nerve to expect to win???? You will never see whites, spanish, asians, etc., allow their ugliest azz women to represent them! How the h**l can a black ever win when we dont send a qualified candidate. They are NOT going to award us a title until we send a woman qualified to win. They’re not going to give us a title just cause a ugly woman with a thick accent says she should win only cause she black. You suck nomalanga! stop shaming us and making us look bad. stay behind teh camera. you’re not qualified to be in front. d**n!

    • You White folk think that because you say you are the most beautiful people on the planet, that automatically makes it “truth.” Guess what–I have a Brooklyn bridge to sell you. Get real!!!

  2. I have been wondering why our black american pageant participants and black american movie stars like beyonce are suddenly falling on the stage since these ugly africans and caribbeans started participating in these pageants in large numbers. Seems like black on black crime to me.

  3. big fohead, stringy hair, and big nose dont win pageants. plain and simple. probably got legs like stump posts, and b*****s the size of lemons. that’s probably beauty in africa, but not america. go home.

  4. She is not qualified to compete in any pageant outside of africa. Stay in your lane.

  5. @ Tina.

    Shut the f**k up you stupid troll. I am seeing a lot of you fake African Americans (showing up to disrespect Nomalanga and other Africans. I wish you would take along deep eternal sleep. Stop trying to promote dissension.

    • Africa however continues to be the epicenter of international catastrophes, man made or otherwise. And it is all about tribes marching inexorably to survival failure and extinction. Down south the Tutsi and Hutu have created Africa’s first Genocide. Up in the North there are fears that the Arab Janjaweed may repeat the Rwanda catastrophe in the Darfur region of Sudan with the world just watching as it did before. Ivory Coast that was once the most prosperous nation South of the Sahara is in the throes of a collective self-annihilation driven by the ethnocentric and deadly tribal concept of Ivorianess. Ivory Coast is following in the footsteps of other tribally driven human suffering with unimaginable scale and frightening consequences: Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea. Superimpose on this, the epidemics of AIDS, Malaria and TB that are flaming across the continent in hot competition with the colossal bloodletting for finishing off the African. Behold once again it is war and epidemics of disease. Humanists of all kinds, international philanthropists, musicians with heart, the young ones that care and politician with personal agendas all bemoan and shed tears for a continent that is on the verge of Armageddon. It is in competition with time.The killing took place on an unimaginable scale. The low estimate is that 500,000 people were killed in less than three months. The high estimate, increasingly accepted as the true figure by the U.N. and the International Committee of the Red Cross, is that one million died. Even today, hardly a week goes by without the discovery of a new mass grave. But the killing was anything but random or unplanned. It was not an eruption of tribal violence or the expression of a particularly African savagery. To the contrary, when the militias of the hard-line Hutu nationalist parties set upon their Tutsi neighbors—Hutu and Tutsi, though usually described as distinct tribes, and sometimes as different races, are historically as much castes as ethnic groups—the genocide they carried out had been long planned by their leaders

      WHEN THEIR CULTURE OVERSHADOWS BLACK AMERICA, THE SAME THING WILL HAPPEN IN AMERICA. IT IS ONE OF THE REASONS OUR COMMUNITIES HAVE BECOME MORE CORRUPT AND MORE VIOLENT AND MORE DISEASED SINCE 1 MILLION AFRICANS HIT AMERICAN SHORES THE LAST 15 YEARS.

  6. Hilarious! You guys really are right wingers! Big nose? What, you mean a big wedge of bone protuding inches from her face like europeans and arabic peoples? I don’t see that in the picture. I see the same kind of nose the majority of the people on this planet have be they african, maouri, east asian or whatever.

    Colonisation of the mind! And those white conservatives are not going to love you for it. Believe.

      AND FOOL BLACK AMERICAN LEADERS DO NOTHING TO PROTECT OUR BLACK AMERICAN TRIBE, WHILE THEY HAVE TO KNOW THAT AFRICANS ARE GENOCIDING EACH OTHER AND DIVIDED FROM EACH OTHER ON THEIR OWN d**n CONTINENT.

      WHO IS GOING TO BE BRAVE ENOUGH TO SAVE BLACK AMERICA’S CHILDREN AND STOP THIS FALSE BLACK UNITY LIE????? WHO IS GOING TO SAVE OUR BLACK HBCU’S FROM THESE SAVAGES???? TELL THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH WILL SAVE OUR BLACK AMERICAN CHILDREN.

  7. Nomalanga, don’t pay any attention to those White female and male trolls who posted those nasty comments. They are so jealous of Black people. Keep on doing what you’re doing girl—making all us Black women proud!!!
