Happy Birthday Shirley Chisholm!!

“#HappyBirthday Shirley Chisholm, American educator and politician! She was the first black woman elected to Congress (1969) and the first black woman to make a bid for the presidency (1972), though she’d rather be known “as a black woman who lived in the 20th century and dared to be herself.” –National Women’s History Museum
