Excerpts

Excerpts

Crowned the first black Miss America in 1983, Vanessa Williams had her reign cut short by media scrutiny over explicit pictures of her in Penthouse magazine. In the aftermath of the controversy, she successfully released the album, The Right Stuff, and has appeared in the films Eraser, Soul Food, and Dance With Me.
