Shirley Chisholm

FILE- In this Nov. 5, 1968, file photo, New York State assemblywoman Shirley Chisholm, D-NY, poses at voting booth in Bethany Methodist Church in the Brooklyn borough of New York. The Brooklyn, N.Y., native made history 50 years ago as the first African-American woman elected to Congress, starting what would become a national political career in which she fearlessly and relentlessly spoke out for causes like civil and women's rights and which included, four years after her first federal win, a run for president.
