Item details

Shirley Chisholm was a pioneering politician, civil rights activist, and feminist. She was the first African-American woman elected to the U.S. Congress, where she represented New York's 12th district from 1969 to 1983. In 1972, she launched a presidential bid, making her the first African American to run for a major party's nomination and the first woman to do so in the Democratic party.

She famously said, though: "I want history to remember me not just as the first black woman to be elected to Congress, not as the first black woman to have made a bid for the presidency of the United States, but as a black woman who lived in the 20th century and dared to be herself."

This is the first pattern in a developing portrait series. If there's someone that you would like to see included, send me a convo.
