Venus Williams is doing her part to preserve a legacy that’s been pivotal to Black culture.
According to a report by Tennis 365, the world-class athlete and philanthropist have partnered with acclaimed artist Adam Pendleton to raise funds for the preservation of the childhood home of Blues icon Nina Simone.
