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.

ESPN's Monica McNutt On Doing The Work & The Restorative Power Of Her 'Me Time'

In xoNecole's Finding Balance, we profile boss women making boss moves in the world and in their respective industries. We talk to them about their business, and most of all, what they do to find balance in their busy lives.

Any time we can see ourselves on TV, holding court, taking up space, and being our most beautiful authentic selves while doing so, it's always a good look. And it's more than just magic. For Monica McNutt, it's also a mix of hard work, determination, experience, and training. The University of Maryland and Georgetown University graduate was a shooting guard who decided she wanted to lend her voice to perspectives behind the scenes in sports through broadcast. She started out covering the Olympics during the summer of 2021, and she'd move on to work with Fox Sports 1, CBS Sports Network, Turner/NBA TV, and NBC’s family of networks.
