About Shirley Chisholm

Shirley Anita Chisholm (1924-2005) was an American politician, educator, and author. In 1968, she became the first African American woman elected to the United States Congress, representing New York's 12th congressional district for seven terms from 1969 to 1983. Known as “Fighting Shirley”, she introduced more than 50 pieces of legislation, championed racial and gender equality, and fought for the poor. In the 1972 United States presidential election, Chisholm went on to make history yet again becoming the first African American 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.  After retiring from Congress in 1983, Shirley taught at Mount Holyoke College and co-founded the National Political Congress of Black Women while continuing her political organizing and fight for education opportunities and social justice.

Awesome!

Super soft, well made short as always. I love that we can find shorts with these unsung heroes on them (where else are you going to find Shirley Chisholm swag?) We are distantly related to SC and thrilled to find this shirt to add to our collection.

I’m so happy that my Black daughter and nieces have supersheroes they can wear. This line of shirts are so reaffirming for Black little girls who constantly seek out themselves in the world. Thanks!

Great Way to Celebrate Black History

I be purchased 4 different trailblazer tee shirts for my granddaughters. It’s a fantastic way to teach them about contributions of African American women. With each tee shirt, I purchased a book about the woman & we enjoyed reading & talking about the woman during African American History Month.
The shirts wash well & are comfortable.
