Happy Birthday Shirley Chisholm~*

"You don't make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas."

"Of my two handicaps, being female put many more obstacles in my path than being black."

"I want history to remember me not just as the first black woman to be elected to Congress, not as the first black woman to have made a bid for the presidency of the United States, but as a black woman who lived in the 20th century and dared to be herself."

Wishing a pioneer and "She-Roe" Shirley Anita St. Hill-Chisholm a very "Happy Birthday". Educated, Sophisticated, HerStory Maker, and Changer!!

Unbought. .Unbossed. .
May your forever. .Rest In Peace. .~*
