|Personal Fact of Shirley Chisholm|
Shirley Chisholm was a political leader with a strong moral sense and courage to stand up for her beliefs. She spent her childhood in Barbados with her grandmother, and realized the importance of the traditional British-style education she received there. The education incorporated strong ideals in her, which shaped her future career. She started off as a teacher and was concurrently involved in political activities as well.
Her strong leadership skills led her to eventually join politics, in spite of her being, as she herself termed it, a double handicap both black and a woman. Chisholm swiftly made a name for herself with her brand of fearless politics. She highlighted key issues throughout her career, especially those regarding education opportunities, racial equality and women empowerment.
Her decision to run for presidency was an attempt to make a statement, to make people consider African-Americans as-well-as women as serious candidates. Against all odds and in spite of knowing well that she did not possess the required resources to mount a serious challenge, Chisholm went ahead with her campaign and won more delegates than anyone expected.
