Other than her dominance in women’s tennis, Serena Williams is a mother, a business woman and a vocal promoter for justice. She has on various events opposed various forms of injustice and more about women empowerment.
The world tennis virtuoso has for some now been talking about Blacks and the treachery they generally face in the midst of challenges.
Williams thinks notwithstanding all things, technology has had the option to give people of color (black people) a voice during the Black Lives Matter movement.
She was discussing this in the British Vogue, as she talked lengthily on the injustice faced by the African-American people community in the United States following the passing of George Floyd and the ensuing Black Lives Matter fights.
Williams believes the use of cell phones and social media has allowed black people the chance to show the world what has been going on for quite a long time.
“Now, we as black people have a voice – and technology has been a huge part of that. We see things that have been hidden for years; the things that we as people have to go through. This has been happening for years. People just couldn’t pull out their phones and video it before”
She further said:
“I think for a minute they started – not to understand, because I don’t think you can understand – but they started to see. I was like: well, you didn’t see any of this before? I’ve been talking about this my whole career. It’s been one thing after another.”
As indicated by Williams, she enjoys utilizing her impact to support women. She has been promoting underestimated voices through her investment firm and her fashion label, Serena. She thinks in this society, women are not educated or expected to be that future leaders, and that the perception needs to change.
Williams is one famous individual who loves standing up for people particularly supporting women, and furthermore being the voice that huge number of people don’t have.
