Cara McClellan Discusses Serena Williams and the US Open

Fellow Cara McClellan (’17) wrote an essay for The Undefeated regarding Serena Williams challenging the referee who penalized her for code violations at the recent U.S. Open (“Happy Birthday, Serena: I’m Proud That You Spoke Up,” Sept. 26). “I was proud of Serena for speaking up,” Care wrote. “Sadly, like so many black women whose behavior has been mischaracterized and mislabeled for far too long, her protests fell on deaf ears.”
