Deshauna Barber Takes Home The Crown As Miss USA 2016. Last night was a proud moment for many African American women and little back girls everywhere as we watched the stunning Deshauna Barber aka Miss District of Columbia take home the crown as the new Miss USA. She stunned in a gorgeous gold gown and big smile as she accepted her new tittle. Deshauna Barber story is so inspiring since she represents so many things, An HBCU graduate, woman of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. and an active member in the US Army. She’s also helps her fellow soldiers who have suffered with PTSD proving showing just how beautiful she truly is inside and out. Congrats Deshauna Barber and we know you will do wonderful things as this year’s Miss USA!
