Congratulations to Maria Isabel, who last night won the Miss Bahia 2018 state crown in Brazil! 👑👏 If our memory is correct, Maria is the first black queen to join the Miss Brazil Class Of 2018 (& they've crowned most of their state queens). She represented the city of Salvador, which is the cradle of Afro-Brazilian culture, in the competition. Next stop: the Miss Brazil 2018 pageant. @_maisabel

Hat tip 🎩 to @mrmccanngallego for alerting us about Maria's win.

A very serious message from Miss Rwanda 2018 Liliane Iradukunda for #Kwibuka24, which remembers the 1994 Rwandan Genocide. An estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000 Rwandans (mostly ethnic Tutsis) were killed by ethnic Hutus during a 100-day period from April 7, 1994 through mid-July 1994. 😱😨😭😩 As many as 70% of the Tutsi population was slaughtered. Additionally, 30% of the ethnic Pygmy Batwa were hacked to death. And yes, all this went down while the world shrugged its shoulders & did nothing 😠. @iradukunda_liliane Video courtesy of @kigali_memorial
