Halle Berry, Tika Sumpter, & Angela Bassett Just Gave Us A Dance Challenge We Didn't Know We Needed

Culture & Entertainment

International Women's Month is coming to an end in a few days, and even though this is our anniversary, let's be clear, we celebrate black girl magic all damn year. From women like Senator Stephanie Flowers giving us life and standing up for the rights of black Americans when it comes to gun policy, to our little sisters Marsai Martin and Nico Parker killing the industry at large as well as the cover of Teen Vogue for their latest issue, women of the 21st century have proven that there isn't much that we cannot do when we band together.

In this spirit of camaraderie, costume designer Ruth E. Carter created a challenge that gives women the opportunity to #DanceTogether, regardless of social status, age, or race. Following a fabulous rendition of Beyonce's "Who Run The World (Girls)", the Black Panther designer announced the challenge and enlisted friends like Gabrielle Union, Lupita N'yongo and Halle Berry to join in on the fun and upload a video singing or dancing to their favorite women's empowerment song. She wrote on Instagram:

"Ladies! Let's have some fun for the rest of #WomensHistoryMonth and show the world when women unite anything is possible."

Since Ruth's call to action, celebs like Tika Sumpter, Halle Berry, Gabrielle Union, Angela Bassett and Kelly Rowland have slid through the gram with their version of the challenge.

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
