A staunch proponent of breaking down racial and gender barriers, Shirley Chisholm had the esteemed privilege of being a pioneer in many aspects of her life. She was the first African American woman from Brooklyn elected to the New York State legislature and the first African American woman elected to Congress in 1968. She also made a run for the Democratic Party nomination for president in 1972. Focusing on Chisholm's lifelong advocacy for fair treatment, access to education, and equal pay for all American minority groups, this book explores the life of a remarkable woman in the context of twentieth-century urban America and the tremendous social upheaval that occurred after World War II.

Shirley Chisholm lived most of her life in secrecy and made a special effort to protect herself from the public, especially her personal and private life. She lived a very painful and lonely life surrounded by few friends and family. When Congresswoman Chisholm retired as a politician in 1983, she completely removed herself from political life. Hundreds of mass media people, film writers, book publishing companies, producers and authors have sought information about her personal and private life. Many of them offered $25,000 to $50,000 for this information. This book can serve as a resource of information on how to survive in a racist, sexist and political environment as a woman. It is a must read to inspire, teach and educate people of all races about the life and legacy of a great American. The book addresses the early life of Congresswoman Chisholm’s birth on November 30, 1924 in the Bedford-Stuyvesant community of Brooklyn, New York to her death in Ormond Beach, Florida on January 1, 2005.

In 1906, fifteen-year old Elizabeth Gurley Flynn mounted a soapbox in Times Square to denounce capitalism and proclaim a new era for women's freedom. Quickly recognized as an outstanding public speaker and formidable organizer, she devoted her life to creating a socialist America, "free from poverty, exploitation, greed and injustice." Flynn became the most important female leader of the Industrial Workers of the World and of the American Communist Party, fighting tirelessly for workers' rights to organize and to express dissenting ideas. Weaving together Flynn's personal and political life, this biography reveals previously unrecognized connections between feminism, socialism, free love, and free speech. Flynn's remarkable career casts new light on the long and varied history of radicalism in the United States.
