Taraji P. Henson has played many different characters — a prostitute, a sniper, a cop — but in her latest role, she lends her voice to the Jergens project Pass on the Radiance. The brand traveled to Ghana to film a video that highlights the harvesting of shea butter, also known as "women's gold," and Taraji narrated the short film. Jergens is also collaborating with the Global Shea Alliance in Africa to donate funds to encourage the work the women are doing. "This is a ritual for the women over there, and it passes down from generation to generation. It's not just about work. They love what they do," Taraji said. "I love that they [Jergens] are not just giving them the money, but they're giving them an opportunity to make their own money doing what they love to do."
