Talk about a trailblazing political powerhouse, American politician, educator, and author, Shirley Chisholm is an absolute icon. In the midst of the civil rights movement, she became the first Black woman elected to the United States Congress. Then in the 70s, she became the first Black candidate for a major-party nomination for President of the United States and the first woman to run for the Democratic Party nomination. She worked tirelessly for justice throughout her career and there are several monuments and movies that honor her.
