For the Social Justice Warrior:
“An insightful and focused profile of a political trailblazer.” – Kirkus Reviews
“This lively, detailed look at Chisholm’s personal and political life shines in its portrayal of a strong woman who never backed down” – Booklist
From Coretta Scott King Honor winner author Tonya Bolden comes a biography of the first Black woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives and the first Black woman to run for president with a major political party: Shirley Chisholm. A daughter of immigrants, Shirley Chisholm’s story is remarkable — she battled racism and sexism, broke barriers, and made history.
Shirley boldly spoke up for what was right and changed the political landscape by becoming the first Black woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, followed by a historic run for President. And while the presidential campaign trail in 1972 did not end in victory, Shirley Chisholm shows us how you can make change happen when you speak up and speak out. Speak Up, Speak Out (Hardcover, ages 10-14, $17.99) includes a forward by voting rights activist and current Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.
For the Screen-Obsessed:
