The Markevic A. Johnson Educational Fund was established in March of 1999 in memory of Keisha Marie Kidd. Keisha was a graduate of Delaware State University, where she obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. Keisha passed shortly after her son, Markevic was born. He is now fourteen years old. She loved pursuing her education and clearly understood its value.

About the Pageant – August 20th in Philadelphia
The Miss Black America Pageant is proud to celebrate almost 50 years of excellence. Our system is a familiar one to some, a fond, reminiscent memory to others, and yet a new, exciting opportunity for thousands of young, teens and women across the country today.
Founded in 1968 by J. Morris Anderson, the Miss Black America system was developed to reverse the negative propaganda of the Black woman and her role in America. Today, as our nation embraces Black beauty, we remain ever committed to the empowerment of women of color throughout America, representing all of our sisters of the African Diaspora. It is with great enthusiasm that we launch “The Rebirth” of our pageant system, with all of its grace and opulence from years past. We encourage all young women, between the ages of 18-29 to join us as we continue the legacy … of “Sowing the Seeds of Positivity and Reaping the Flowers of success.”
