BET Awards: Maxine Waters and Kamala Harris 'Real-Life Black Women Superheroes' (NewsBusters)
It was all about social justice during the 2018 BET Awards on June 24, hosted by Jamie Foxx.
Actresses Amandla Stenberg and Regina Hall presented the Best Collaboration Award and during some pre-presentation banter, they gave a shoutout to two “real-life black women superheroes,” Rep. Maxine Waters and Sen. Kamala Harris. Of Waters, they noted her “unyielding superpower of re-claiming her time” and of Harris they described her as having a "real-life Wonder Woman lasso of truth.”
