Serena, Queen of the Amazons, and her symbolic power

Wednesday, July 13, 2016

Here’s a wonderful article about Serena Williams, if you can access it. Be sure not to skip the last paragraphs.

The only thing missing is the extraordinary fact that when she accepted her French Open trophy, she did it in French. Imagine that! Remember how John Kerry was ridiculed for the sin of being fluent in French?  (As a lifelong Francophile, I resented that. Besides, it was ignorant and stupid.) Now here is one of the most potent symbols of American sport for all time, speaking the language of the “effete” French. Vive Serena!
