Serena and Venus Williams
Serena and Venus Williams have been comfortable at the top of the tennis world for a while now, but two years ago they achieved another milestone in professional sports. The top ranked sisters became part owners of the NFL’s Miami Dolphins. They bought a minority stake in the franchise, becoming the first female African-Americans to hold an ownership stake in an NFL team. The league has no African-American majority owner. In addition to opening that door to the front office, the Williams sisters also want to be ambassadors for their team and facilitate further outreach to the community.
