SERENA AND VENUS WILLIAMS SPEAK ABOUT VIOLENCE

Serena and Venus Williams are no strangers to the tragedy brought about by violence in the Compton, California community.

The sisters opened up about how violence has affected them personally to a panel of community activists moderated by Jemele Hill.

Serena spoke about the death of her sister, Yetunde Price who was killed in September 2003, the victim of a drive-by shooting in Compton.

“Well, violence has affected our lives personally — we lost our sister, she was the oldest — to violence. But I think what people don’t realize is how violence really affects not only your family, but your friends, your neighbors,” she said.

Serena choked up, and Venus took up the narrative, revealing how the loss of their sister at 31 had shattered them.

“Violence not only affects the victim’s family, but also the family of the perpetrator. It ruins their lives as well. If you’re a mother or father, it’s not your plan to have your child commit this. It ruins lives," Venus said.

The Williams sisters have never forgotten their community, and are active in several programs created to improve conditions in Compton, and fight the root causes of violence.
