You Should Meet: Shirley Chisholm

Meet Shirley Chisholm. In 1968, Shirley Chisholm made history as the first African American woman elected to Congress. That same year, Shirley was voted one of the ten most admired women in the world. She also ran for president in 1972, the first African American woman to do so for one of the two big political parties. Shirley lived out her life determined to be “unbossed and unbought” and remained a spokesperson for change, and to this day she is still an inspiration to everyone who dreams of breaking boundaries. A special section at the back of the book includes extras like an article on how voting works and a brief lesson on the three branches of US government.

The You Should Meet series presents engaging biographies that are just right for newly independent readers to discover more about their heroes! Colorful illustrations capture key moments from each figure's life, while the age-appropriate text keeps kids flipping pages. Learning about amazing people has never been so much fun.
