Unbought And Unbossed: Shirley Chisholm’s USPS Black Heritage Stamp Revealed

29 Jan

Shirley-Chisholm

The first African American Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm was honored with an official stamp as part of the USPS Black Heritage series. Ronald Stroman, Deputy Postmaster General of  USPS, explained on “NewsOne Now” that it’s important to use the stamp to honor her contributions and teach her legacy to young people.

“You have to have a strong foundation and she set that foundation for those who came after,” said Stroman, “and the people who go first often time suffer backlash. She was willing to take on that challenge, willing to be independent and take all of the criticism that came.”
