A former beauty queen and single mom prepares her rebellious teenage daughter for the “Miss Juneteenth” pageant.
User Reviews: When you sit down to watch Miss Juneteenth, you’ll be relieved to find that there are no "Baby Mamas" or "Welfare Queens" here. What first time feature director Channing Godfrey Peoples gives us is far more valuable. Through an Oscar worthy performance by Nicole Beharie who plays Turquoise, the audience is gifted something priceless; the story of a true, multidimensional, authentic, living , breathing African American mother. Miss Juneteenth is a healing experience and Cathartic release for mothers everywhere.
