Publisher Description

The fascinating, “upfront and unapologetic” (Kirkus Reviews) memoir of Richard Williams, a businessman, tennis coach, subject of the major motion picture King Richard, and father to two of the greatest athletes and professional tennis champions of all time—Venus and Serena Williams.

Born into poverty in Shreveport, Louisiana in the 1940s, Richard Williams was blessed by a strong, caring mother who remained his lifelong hero, just as he became a hero to Venus and Serena. From the beginning of his life, Richard’s mother taught him to live by the principles of courage, confidence, commitment, faith, and love. He passed the same qualities on to his daughters, who grew up loving their father and valuing the lessons he taught them. “I still feel really close to my father,” says Serena. “We have a great relationship. There is an appreciation. There is a closeness because of what we’ve been through together, and a respect.”

A self-made man, Williams has walked a long, hard, exciting, and ultimately rewarding road during his life, surmounting many challenges to raise a loving family and two of the greatest tennis players who ever lived. Black and White is the extraordinary story of that journey and the indomitable spirit that made it all possible.

American Dreams Vs nightmares described at their best embodied by a real man in a real tough world. Who didn't stop only at making history, but also changed it.

Mr. Richard Williams a man with a vision that changed not only his daughters reality in life, but helped inspire & shape others future and destiny.
It's not about tennis, it's about mental strength, moral controversies, black and white, lost and won battles in a rich life of extreme experiences. It's what you want in life and how are you going to get it.

Chapter 15 is the start of the daughters, it makes sense after you go through his own story on the previous 14 chapters.

I really enjoyed it! And learnt a lot from it.
