"The Woman King" is based on an all-female warrior unit in West Africa starting in the 17th century.
King made her NFL debut as a coaching intern for the Carolina Panthers in 2018. Following her time in North Carolina, King was named a coaching intern for Washington at the start of the 2020 NFL season where she broke ground as the first Black woman coaching on an NFL sideline.
