In 1964 Shirley (Anita St. Hill) Chisholm, one of the four girls born to immigrant parents, was the only female to be elected to represent her Brooklyn community in the New York State Assembly in Albany. Discover what motivated and inspired this great woman to claim her historical status in the United States: the first Black female to be elected to the New York State Assembly; the first Black female to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives; and the only black female to be nominated to run for President of United States.
