The Department of Black Studies Honors Shirley Chisholm

The Department of Black Studies is proud to honor Shirley Chisholm during Women's History Month. As a Black woman who stood at the intersection of race and gender, her story serves as a perfect bridge between Black History Month and Women's History Month. 

Memorable Quote: "If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair."
