Miss USA, Teen USA and America are making history

Congratulations to Miss USA, Miss Teen USA and Miss America! They have made history because for the first time ever all three of them are African-American women!

Nia Franklin is 25 years old. She was crowned as Miss America back in September. Cheslie Kryst, 28, is Miss USA and Kaliegh Garris is 18 years old and won Miss Teen USA.

When asked why 3 black women holding the titles simultaneously is important, Franklin said, "It is important for little brown and black girls to see three strong figures, three strong women, African-American women that are doing so much great work."

Franklin, Kryst and Garris all appeared on CBS This Morning together. Check out their interview below.
