Shauntay Hinton is an actress and former beauty queen from Starkville, Mississippi who won the Miss USA title in 2002.





Hinton graduated from Starkville High School in 1997. She later studied broadcast communications at Howard University.


Hinton won the Miss District of Columbia USA 2002 title in November 2001, the first time she had competed in the competition. Hinton hails from Starkville, Mississippi and she qualified to compete there because she was attending Howard University.

Hinton went on to represent the District of Columbia at the Miss USA 2002 pageant held in Gary, Indiana on 28 February, 2002 where she became the third African American to win the Miss USA title.[1] The pageant marked the first time that 4 out of the 5 five finalists were African American.

Hinton later competed in the Miss Universe 2002 pageant in Puerto Rico in May that year. As of 2007, she is one of only three Miss USA winners not to have placed among the semifinalists at Miss Universe. The other two are Miss USA 1976 Barbara Peterson and Miss USA 1999 Kimberly Pressler.
