Tennis fans remember Serena Williams' Black History Month C-Walk Dance

After winning her first and only Olympic gold medal in the women's singles event at the 2012 London Games, Serena Williams gave the Olympics a touch of the Compton, California flavor.

The C-Walk dance was introduced by Williams as a celebration gesture, much to the delight of her supporters at the time, including Venus Williams.

Tennis enthusiasts have taken advantage of the chance to reflect on the infamous incident involving the American tennis great as Black History Month is presently being honored.

The gang "Crip" is represented by the "C" in C-Walk. From Compton, where Williams is originally from, gang members performed and popularized the "Crip Walk" initially.

The dance technique has gained a lot of popularity over time,

but Serena Williams is credited with introducing it to the tennis community when she defeated fierce rival Maria Sharapova 6-0, 6-1 to win the coveted Olympic gold.

At the courtside, Williams displayed some spectacular maneuvers that elicited thunderous applause from the fans and a very delighted Venus Williams.

The incident, which received far more attention than the actual event did, was recently brought up by fans as they honored Williams, one of the most important figures in African-American history.

"You can take the girl out of #Compton, but not the Compton out of her," a Twitter user commented in response to Serena Williams' dance.
