✨Do you know Shirley Anita St. Hill Chisholm?

Daughter of a factory worker and a maid, she was

* the first Black woman to be elected to Congress
* the first Black woman to have made a bid for the presidency of the United States
* a catalyst for change in America in the 1970s

and she wrote a book about it…
📚 Unbought and unbossed
by Shirley Chisholm

💬 ” That I am a national figure because I was the first person in 192 years to be at once a congressman, black and a woman proves, I think, that our society is not yet either just or free.” -Shirley Chisholm

She paved the way for our beloved 44th @barackobama ! She was unapologetically fashionable and didn’t bite her tongue on anything! ”Unbought & Unbossed” was the slogan for her first congressional campaign.

Did you know her?
