The great #ShirleyChisholm was before my time, but given #KamalaHarris' historic candidacy as the 1st Black woman in the POTUS *top tier*, her legacy is more on my mind. When I met #Kamala she brought up Shirley, so I dedicate this thread to 2 powerful Black women trailblazers.
#ShirleyChisholm announced her candidacy for the Democratic Party in January 25, 1972. She was the first Black woman to ever run for a major party nomination.

"You have to recognize that because I am not White and because I am not a male I am not going to get the blessings of the power structure in this country...of course I'm not going to get their blessings" #UnboughtUnbossed #Kamala2020 #KamalaHarris2020 #KHive
"A catalyst for change in society is usually persona non-grata with those who have been the beneficiary of the system." #ShirleyChisholm's words still ring true with the media erasure & marginalization of #KamalaHarris. #Kamala is up for the fight & we got her!#Kamala2020 #KHive
.@TheRevAl tying together #Kamala's campaign launch to that of #ShirleyChisholm. "I could only think that Shirley Chisholm was looking down proud at #KamalaHarris having 20,000 people at her announcement, of all races. She has picked up that mantle."
#KamalaHarris talks about the significance of #ShirleyChisholm's legacy and its meaning as she seeks to be the first Black woman elected President. #Kamala2020 #KamalaHarris2020
"I would be surprised if we didn't have a woman President in the next 20-25 years." #ShirleyChisholm
It has been 20 yrs since the 25 yrs #ShirleyChisholm expected to see a woman President. Hillary Clinton broke the popular vote glass ceiling. It's time to put a woman in the White House and #KamalaHarris has taken up Chisholm's mantle. #Kamala2020 #RiseUp4Kamala song by @teewanz
