Amplifying Black Voices-Shirley Chisholm

Interviewer- “Was there any noticeable change in how your colleagues treated you in Congress? (After her presidential campaign)

Shirley Chisholm: They didn’t realize I was so smart. The men, some of them approached me and said, “You have a brain!” I’ve always had a brain

She was the first black woman to be elected to Congress in 1968.

This woman was amazing and someone to be emulated, not belittled.

Think About It.
