The Williams sisters and their mother are in Nigeria this week to promote women's tennis and the empowerment of women on the continent of Africa.
Taking their own successes in women's tennis, a sport which before them was dominated by white players, the Williams sisters want to inspire women in the African continent to take up the sport and, more generally, to pursue their dreams despite whatever odds they face in male dominated societies.
On Wednesday, the sisters conducted tennis classes with children at a Lagos sports club.
On Thursday, Venus and Serena visited a school to discuss empowerment of girls and on Friday they are scheduled to play an exhibition match against each other.
They will then travel to South Africa as part of their tour, where hopefully they will get some dance lessons!
