Drawing from an interview with Dr. Fraser on Shirley Chisholm’s importance in contemporary politics, Hajela writes:

She didn’t let the institutional power her campaign faced rattle her, said Zinga Fraser, professor and director of the Shirley Chisholm Project on women and activism at Brooklyn College.

In Sunday’s article, Dr. Fraser also observed:

“[Chisholm] called herself the people’s candidate because she wanted to bring on a new way to think about democracy, and who was privileged and who had the audacity to run.”

The Shirley Chisholm Project and it’s upcoming Chisholm Day celebration were also recently mentioned in a piece in The New York Amsterdam News.
