She tours the nation, speaking about topics significant to her and those affecting the United States and the world.During the 1930's, under the directorship of Lenora Slaughter, the pageant became segregated as rule number seven stated: "contestants must be of good health and of the white race." Rule seven was abolished in 1950.
