Not Done Yet : Shirley Chisholm's Fight for Change
Author: Tameka Fryer Brown
Illustrator: Nina Crews
A natural-born fighter, Shirley Chisholm looked for ways to lift up others first by becoming a teacher, then a community leader, then a state assemblywoman, then a US House Representative—but she still wasn't done yet . . .
Shirley Chisholm was a natural-born fighter. She didn’t like to be bossed and she wanted things to be fair.
Brooklyn-born Shirley Chisholm was smart and ambitious. She poured her energy into whatever she did—from teaching young children to becoming Brooklyn’s first Black assemblywoman. Not afraid to blaze a trail, she became the first Black woman elected to Congress and the first woman to seriously run for US president. With a vision of liberty and justice for all, she worked for equal rights, for the environment, for children, and for health care. Even now, her legacy lives on and inspires others to continue her work . . . which is not done yet.
