November 7, 2018

The fifth of November marked the historic 50th anniversary of the election of the first African American woman to the U.S. Congress, Rep. Shirley Chisholm. This important milestone marks a watershed moment in American politics for Black women to emerge and take their rightful seats at the table of elected Democratic leadership.

Her career and those of many Black women in Congress are intrinsically connected. One of those women is California Congresswoman Barbara Lee.
