Black and White: The Way I See It
by Richard Williams
He’d set his mind to raise two of the
greatest women champions in professional tennis well before
they could even hold a racket. The father of Venus and
Serena Williams had a grand plan for his daughters. The
source of his vision, the method behind his execution, and
the root of his indomitable spirit he held private. Until
now. What he reveals about his success—his story of
struggle, determination, hard work, and family—is told in
the pages of this inspiring memoir, Black and White: The Way
I See It.
Richard Williams, for the first time
ever, shares stories about the poverty and violence of his
early life in Shreveport, Louisiana, in the 1940s—a life
that could have ended on the day he was born because of
indifference, racism, and cruelty were it not for the
strength of his mother and the kindness of a stranger.
Williams’s mother was his hero, just as he became a hero to
Venus and Serena, who express in the book the lessons he
taught them and how much they love their much-criticized and
Mother's Black Book (Church Gurlz Book 1)
How does it feel to be treated like dirt
beneath someone’s shoes? Or no matter how hard you push to
get into someone’s good graces, you are continuously batted
away as if you are an irritant pest? Ask Tara Lamont,
hairstylist and fiancée to Wynton Lakatos – who struggles
hard against the burgeoning attacks of Wynton’s mother,
Doreen Lakatos. Doreen is no pushover. She might be the
First Lady of Brandon View Baptist Church, but like most
mothers she wants the best for her children. To Doreen, that
means Tara is not good enough for Wynton, and that she will
stop at nothing until she kicks Tara as far as she can --
out of Wynton’s life.
Jasmine Benton – daughter of real estate
tycoon, Karl Benton – knows what it’s like to be ‘listed’ in
“Mother’s Black Book”. Her past connection with Wynton
created bad blood between Doreen and Jasmine’s mother, which
ultimately led to Jasmine being ‘deployed’ to a different
city for twelve years. But something tragic occurs that
brings Jasmine back to face her past. How will she fare
under the ‘new’ rules of the game?
