February is the month we celebrate and give roses to past and present Black and African American heroes. This week we are starting with Shirley Chisholm!

Shirley Anita St. Hill Chisholm was the first African American woman in Congress (1968) and the first woman and African American to seek the nomination for president of the United States from one of the two major political parties (1972). She was a cofounder of the National Women's Political Caucus in 1971, and in 1977 she became the first Black woman and second woman ever to serve on the powerful House Rules Committee.
