"Service is the rent that you pay for room on this earth."

Let this political trailblazer, Shirley Chisholm—the first African American congresswoman in 1968, and in 1972, the first major-party Black candidate to make a bid for the U.S. presidency—inspire you and inform others! Shirley Chisholm inspires us every day to fight and serve for what we believe in.

Constructed from high quality durable organic cotton, it has a bottom gusset that it extra roomy.

Let the foremothers do the talking!

Priced $18.66 on purpose: the year the 14th Amendment was passed, providing the vote to formerly enslaved people. As you know, the Amendment was undermined by discriminatory, local "states' rights" voting laws—as the Civil Rights Movement created more opportunities for African Americans and other disadvantaged Americans to exercise the vote, candidates like Shirley Chisholm were extremely inspiring.
