Serena Williams Accepts The Jackie Robinson Sports Award At The NAACP Image Awards

by Black America Web

Congratulations to Serena Williams as the beauty just accepted the Jackie Robinson Sports Award at this year’s NAACP Image Awards.

The award recognizes individuals in sports for their achievement in athletics as well as for their work in social justice, civil rights, and community involvement. With her accepting this award, Williams joins the likes of  Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Magic Johnson, Wilma Rudolph, and the Harlem Globetrotters who were previously honored with this achievement.

And with the superstar being called one of the greatest athletes of all time, she is more than deserving of the incredible honor, holding  23 Grand Slam singles titles and having won Wimbledon seven times as a singles competitor.

Serena Williams took to the stage at this evening’s ceremony donning a custom Brandon Blackwood silk velvet gown that featured a deep V neckline. She paired the look with a sheer silk corset to help accentuate the asymmetric waistline along with a high slit and a circular train for extra flair. The beauty was all smiles when she received the honor, holding it high above her head and thanking her family and loved ones for supporting her throughout her incredible career.

What an honor! Congratulations to our G.O.A.T, Serena Williams!
