Shirley Chisholm Quote

Good morning. In 1972, Shirley Chisholm ran for President of the United States under the Democratic Party. Today's, quote, is an honor of Women's History Month. If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair. Shirley Chisholm, Have a Blessed day

Thank you so much for sharing this. I had no idea that Shirley Chisholm ran for President. And that's sad considering that I'm about to graduate with a bachelor's degree. And yet never in my education did I learn about Shirley Crystal. Thank you so much for sharing this quote and telling a piece of her story

@Izzy and 🌱🙏 Kim

And this is a really good example of not knowing about the first Black woman who really broke so many rules to follow her dream and speak for her community. I'm thinking that there is a film about her, but I can't remember. I think it might be a documentary, but I'll find out and if I find it, I will paste it here. Thanks

Hey, everybody. Thank you so much for resonating with my Shirley Chisholm quote. I did find a link to a longer story about her that I will share, and it does include the name of the film that was mentioned in the Reply. So thank you so much. I was a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated, which is a sorority that I also belong to. So I Shirley Chisholm holds a special place in my heart
