Professor Zinga A. Fraser featured along with Rep. Yvette Clark, Senator Kamala Harris, Rep. Maxine Waters and several others on the importance of Shirley Chisholm.

“She is the first, at the time, really trying to create a coalition of young people when she’s running for the presidency, a coalition of people of color, people of indigenous descent, African-Americans,” said Zinga A. Fraser, Ph.D, and director of the Shirley Chisholm Project on Brooklyn Women’s Activism. “She understood that one group alone could not elect a president.”
