Shirley Chisholm (first black Congresswoman and woman to run for President in the US). "If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair." . . . "Tremendous amounts of talent are lost to our society just because that talent wears a skirt."
Decades before Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton, there was Shirley Chisholm. As the first black woman to run for president for a major political party, she was years ahead of her time. So why don't more people know about her?
