Comments: Shirley Chisholm has died

I never cared much for the vast majority of Her politics, but she was a brave and proud lady. You are right, we could use more of that kind of representative in congress, on either side of the aisle.

I thought you would mention that she said she represented her district first, not Black people.

I saw her speak a few years ago. Nice lady.

Mrs. Chisholm served as a silent mentor to me. She did not know that she was mentoring me and I never got a chance to let her know. She showed me what intelligent black women represented. Her poised, articulate, well positioned stately posture, paved the way for those of us who have been left behind to make a difference. Her legacy will always be remembered by me.

I've been doin research on Shirley Chisholm and she seemed to be such a nice person. So far i've learned alot about her and i hope to learn lots more._ R.I.P Shirley_ And since we never know when our time may come keep watching the gate for me and if you're in heaven tell my cousin LaBrian Harris that I love him and i miss him.
