—Jackie Robinson Ballpark & Museum —In 1968, Shirley Anita Chisholm, known as "Fighting Shirley Chisholm", a former educator and member of the New York State Assembly, became the first black woman to be elected to the U.S. Congress. Known for her incisive debating style and uncompromising integrity, she won this race against tremendous odds on account of both her race and sex. Shirley Chisholm went on to make a name for herself as a passionate advocate for civil rights, women's rights, the poor and against the Vietnam War. She changed the nation's perception about the capabilities of women and African-Americans.
