Congratulations Ayanna. The portrait of Shirley Chisholm by Kadir Nelson is one of my favorites. Both the artist and the painting.

Chisholm was the first Black woman to run for President, and — along with Bella Abzug — my first introduction to women owning their political power.
Glad to see that she’s still inspiring the new generation of leaders!
