Before Hilary Clinton. Before Barack Obama. Political pioneer and unsung hero Shirley Chisholm was the Catalyst For Change. Shocking the world and creating a media frenzy; Shirley had the intellect, dignity and fierceness to trail-blaze her way through the political arena. As a community advocate and the first African American Congresswoman, elected in 1968 (NY); Shirley believed that, Nothing is more important than solving the domestic problems of poverty, ignorance, racism and hunger.A midst the murk and mire of the 'Good Ole' Boy' sociopolitical majority; Shirley forged on spearheading a legislative movement of socio-economic equality for the masses. Determined to bring her message to the forefront, Shirley ignored the opposition and risk factors, and asked,...why not dare to dream as so many have before me?
