Summary
"Shirley Chisholm died in 2005, and her career had largely ended over a decade before that. But the life of this remarkable woman has particular resonance for our world today. The child of immigrants, she was the first African American woman elected to Congress and the first African American to run for the Democratic Party presidential nomination. This compelling volume traces Chisholm's life from her childhood, through her career in education, through her extraordinary political career. Accessible text addresses important social studies material, while powerful photos bring the text to life. Photo captions, sidebars, and graphic organizers enhance the main text."--
