Serena on "The Black List"

Serena's on the list...."The Black List"



The always caring and concerned Serena Williams contributes to "The Black List." “The Black List” is a documentary which seeks to bury the negative weight of the term by allowing African-Americans to provide an up-to-the-minute answer to the grim origins of “blacklist.” In a film that works as series of living portraits, twenty-five prominent African Americans of various professions, disciplines and backgrounds offer their own stories and insights on the struggles, triumphs and joys of black life in this country and manage to re-define “blacklist” for a new century in the process.

It is comprised of an HBO documentary film, a museum exhibition of photographic portraits, a forthcoming book of those photographs and a national interactive, curriculum-based educational program. The film is presented as a series of vignettes – a kind of living portraiture – in which the subjects address the camera directly as they tell their stories.

Timothy Greenfield-Sanders directed the film in collaboration with Elvis Mitchell who conducted the interviews. Mitchell is never seen on camera or heard, thus allowing the subjects’ own voices to remain the focus. "The Black List" film premieres on HBO August 25th. Each compelling interview serves as a potent illustration of empowerment in the face of unique limitations and broader obstacles. For more information, visit www.blacklistproject.com

whats to comment on the show is stupid and contridictory, if it was 25 white people that have made something of themselves recalling their struggles excluding black people from the list it would be wrong.
im white come from a broken home and have been bullied for various reason and have struggled to make something of my life but im not black so i guess its not as impressive!

Re: Serena on "The Black List"

I find at that link names of all 25 "The Black List":

Serena Williams
Colin Powell
Kareem Abdul Jabbar
Keenan Ivory Wayans
Richard Parsons
Sean Combs
Thelma Golden
Vernon Jordan
Toni Morrison
Susan Rice
Chris Rock
Russel Simmons
Slash
Steve Stoute
Zane
Mahlon Duckett
Lou Gossett
Bill T Jones
Marc Morial
Suzan Lori Parks
William Rice
Al Sharpton
Lorna Simpson
Dawn Staley
Faye Wattleton


Perhaps Americans knows about all this African-Americans (for me is more than half unknown).

BTW i will not be too much surprised if Serena and Venus in next 4 or maybe 8 years will be part of many US Media "kissObama*ss" projects

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
