Serena Williams Takes Young Girls to See Black Panther

Real-Life Superhero Serena Williams Surprises Young Girls at a Black Panther Screening

Serena Williams went to see the newly released Black Panther with quite a big group. Fortunately, the 36-year-old star athlete didn't have to worry about saving seats — she and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, rented out an entire theater to treat a group of young girls to their own private screening. The girls are all affiliated with Black Girls Code, a nonprofit that offers technology education for young black girls.

The best part? They had no idea she would be attending. In a video shared by Alexis, the group went wild when Serena walked in to crash their private screening. "I'm glad you guys could make it out," Serena says in the video. "Obviously this is a huge moment for us and for black people. We've never had a superhero movie, so we're so excited. I feel like I waited my whole life for this."
