Kyara Murry is the 2022 Miss Black Texas USA, and she will honorably represent Texas in the national Miss Black USA pageant that will be held this August in Washington D.C.
The Miss Black USA organization is highly respected and has redefined what it means to be a courageous, compassionate, and confident woman of color. The Miss Black USA Pageant allows for Black women to have a platform to showcase the power and beauty that comes with being unapologetically Black. Miss Black USA is proud that FOX SOUL is airing the Miss Black USA Pageant for the very first time-emphasizing their commitment to the community.
In addition to holding the title of Miss Black Texas, Kyara Murry, is also the co-founder and CEO of Legally Black and the co-founder of Select Three consulting. A native of Janesville Wisconsin, Kyara completed her Bachelor’s Degree at Tennessee State University, where she majored in Political Science with a minor in Spanish. She then went on to attend Columbia University, where she completed her Masters of Science in Nonprofit Management.
After graduating with her masters degree, she participated in a certificate of legal studies program at Washington University at St. Louis Law School. Currently, she is 2021 Juris Doctor graduate of Thurgood Marshall School of Law, where she serves as the current Miss Thurgood Marshall School of Law (TMSL) 2021-2022.
Becoming Miss Black USA will be a dream come true for Kyara, and will aid her reach as an attorney, advocate, and servant to the Black, Indigenous and People of color (BIPOC) community. More importantly, this will allow her to have a larger platform to continue to reach the youth and inspire them to dream big, work hard, and believe in themselves to achieve their goals.
Kyara’s L.I F.E.conduct includes community focusing on transportation, housing, land use, and public health concerns, as well as climate policy as a whole. She plans to use her intellectual skills to engage others in critical study, thought, reflection, voting, public policy, promoting sustainability, and community outreach. While doing so, she plans to uphold a legacy of family and friends who have instilled in her the desire and dedication to serve and help others. Her mission is to rise out of poverty and sustain families. She also wants to address food justice and economic development by harnessing the local, food good movement, and creating small business.
