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.

Something that I try to mention, as much as possible, especially when it comes to married and long-term couples is, if you want to go the distance, it's not just the "big things" that you've got to stay up on; it's the little things too. Something as simple as you being a morning person while your partner is a night owl can affect everything from quality of sleep to quality time to your sex life. That's why, when it comes to couples who have different sleep patterns who still want to have a fulfilling sexual dynamic, I'm all about encouraging them to do what is at the foundation for all successful relationships — compromise. Sometimes that means that an alarm clock needs to be set or someone needs to initiate some, umm, stuff (more on that in a bit) in order to get the juices flowing (pun intended and not intended).
