Interesting documentary about Shirley Chisholm - first African American women elected to US Congress
On this day in 1972, Shirley Chisholm announced her candidacy for president. Chisholm, the first Black woman to be elected to Congress, was the first Black person to make a bid for the U.S. presidency. Read "Unbought and Unbossed: Expanded 40th Anniversary Edition" by Shirley Chisholm: WNYC Collection, 1936 - 1981 NYC Department of Records, Municipal Archives, New York City
Copied. America honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this year on Monday, Jan. 19 — a day now observed nationally. It wasn’t always so. After his April 1968 assassination, King’s friends and families sought national recognition for the civil rights leader and his work for racial reconciliation through nonviolence. U.S. Rep. John Conyers of Michigan first introduced legislation seeking the holiday just days after King was murdered, but the bill stalled in Congress. For the next decade, Conyers and U.S. Rep. Shirley Chisholm of New York resubmitted the bill each legislative session, and it slowly gained supporters. In November 1979, legislation to make King’s birthday a national holiday came within five votes of passing the House of Representatives. The next year, singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder and King’s widow, Coretta Scott King, organized a national campaign with a petition that gathered 6 million signatures in favor of the bill. With growing public pressure in favor of the holiday, Congress fina ...

"Women need no protection that men do not need. What we need are laws to protect working people, to guarantee them fair pay, safe working conditions, protection against sickness and layoffs, and provision for dignified, comfortable retirement. Men and women need these things equally. That one sex needs protection more than the other is a male supremacist myth as ridiculous and unworthy of respect as the white supremacist myths that society is trying to cure itself of at this time." - Shirley Chisholm (Equal Rights for Women- In the House of Representatives, May 21, 1969)

“Don’t Buy Where You Can’t Work!”- Rev.Adam Clayton Powell Jr. The late great Congressman’s words remain relevant to our position as people today. Rev. Adam Clayton Powell represented Harlem for twenty-five years and was a Black politician not afraid to be Black and didn’t forget his roots when he was elected. The difference between politicians of yesteryear like Powell, Hiram Revels, Shirley Chisholm, John Mercer Langston and George Henry White is they were Black politicians that fought and labored on behalf of Black America. Why is it today that there are thousands of Black elected officials in every corner of the country, yet no clear agenda has been set forth for Black America? Why does every other tribe build businesses where they have a competitive advantage and fit into their place on the global stage whereas Black America still demonstrates,campaigns and marches for “Civil Rights”?
