On Serena

· Aug 26, 2015 09:54 am

In the mid-1990s when Venus and Serena Williams were teenagers, when the jangle of beaded scalp-tight cornrows and silver braces on their teeth long preceded waist-length weaves and fake painted fingernails, neither blacks specifically nor America generally knew exactly what we were looking at when we looked at the Williams sisters. ...
