Serena Williams giving back in a major way.
Tennis Grand Slam all-star, Serena Williams, is yet another celebrity who has surprised a group of deserving youth to view Black Panther for free. We recently posted on T.I. giving away a bunch of tickets to the film and TDE's Anthony Tiffith taking a few busloads of kids to a private screening at a number of theatres in Los Angeles.
Serena and her husband Alexis Ohanian organized an event in San Fransisco with Black Girls CODE, a program that provides technology education to young black women. Around 40 young girls were super surprised since they had no idea Serena and her husband would be in attendance.
"We've never had a super hero movie," Serena said to the girls, as seen in the video below. "So we're so excited. I feel like I've waited my whole life for this."
Serena recently covered Vogue magazine, talking about being a mother for the first time. “Sometimes I get really down and feel like, man, I can't do this,” the 36-year-old said. “It’s that same negative attitude I have on the court sometimes. I guess that’s just who I am. No one talks about the low moments ― the pressure you feel, the incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry.”
She and Alexis welcomed their baby girl Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. in September.
