The C.O.W.S. BLACK AND WHITE: THE WAY I SEE IT Part VII (Conclusion)

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the seventh and final study session on Richard Williams’ 2014 publication, Black & White: The Way I See It. Mr. Williams is the parent of two of the greatest tennis champions in history, Serena and Venus Williams. Mr. Williams is not a beloved black patriarch of the White-ruled tennis world. He’s regularly chided  – even accused of “rigging” matches between his two child icons. Mr. Williams’ autobiography pays tribute to the extraordinarily constructive influence of his black mother – Ms. Julia Metcalf Williams – as well as his childhood in the south. Last week’s installment outlined some of the core values Mr. Williams worked to pass on to his offspring. He stressed the fundamental importance of faith – drawing spiritual energy from the creator to remain confident, strong. He allowed his daughters to see the contrast between black life in Los Angeles’ skid row and affluent White life in Beverly Hills. This week’s installment continues with Mr. Williams’ recollections of the deplorable and Racist conduct many of the prosperous Whites displayed at the 2001 Indian Wells championship match – which Serena won. We’ll also hear his thoughts on the tragic murder of his daughter, Yetunde Price. This text continues to offer a wonderful illustration of #BlackSelfRespect
