Be the First

Shirley Chisholm (1924 - 2005) was the first Black woman to get elected to Congress in the early '60s.

This was during an era of open racism and sexism when being a black woman would have made it easy and almost welcome to bury her dreams.

She went on to represent New York's 12th District from 1969 to 1983. Not only that, she became the first woman to run for presidential nomination in the Democratic Party in 1972.

She was a badass because she seemed to do the impossible.

She knew you could either give up on a goal because it’s hard, or...

You could get clear about what you want and go after that goal PRECISELY because it’s hard. 🔥🔥🔥
