Kamala Harris is an inspiring “first” in many ways, but the path to her election was paved by many other women and people of color. One such woman was Shirley Chisholm, who—in 1972—became the first woman to seek a major party’s nomination to run for president of the United States. 

In this Teaching Idea, students learn about Shirley Chisholm’s ground-breaking career, her legacy, and the significance of Vice President Kamala Harris’s election.
