Serena Williams is among those featured in a new show celebrating influential African-Americans at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. "The Black List," which opens Friday and runs through April 22, has 50 large-scale photographs from Timothy Greenfield-Sanders' project, which included a 2008 film that aired on HBO. Barack Obama, Colin Powell, Sean Combs, Denzel Washington and Michael Jordan also are highlighted in the exhibition.

Here is a clip of Williams from the movie, one of the rare times Serena openly discusses race in tennis and how she thinks she's perceived by fans and media.
