Quote from Shirley Chrisholm, who in 1968 became the first African American woman elected to the United States Congress. Chrisholm represented New York's 12th Congressional District for seven terms from 1969 to 1983. In 1972, she became the first black candidate for a major party's nomination for President of the United States, and the first woman to run for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination. #wordsofwisdom #shirleychrisholm
