Dr. Zinga A. Fraser, the Director of the Shirley Chisholm Project was featured in an article by AP reporter Deepti Hajela “50 Years in, Chisholm’s Historic Victory Offers Inspiration.”
Drawing from an interview with Dr. Fraser on Shirley Chisholm’s importance in contemporary politics, Hajela writes:
She didn’t let the institutional power her campaign faced rattle her, said Zinga Fraser, professor and director of the Shirley Chisholm Project on women and activism at Brooklyn College.
In Sunday’s article, Dr. Fraser also observed:
“[Chisholm] called herself the people’s candidate because she wanted to bring on a new way to think about democracy, and who was privileged and who had the audacity to run.”
Hajela’s article has also been published in a number of publications this week including The New York Times, The Washington Post, NBC New York, US News, The Tampa Bay Times , The Houston Chronicle, San Francisco Gate
The Shirley Chisholm Project and it’s upcoming Chisholm Day celebration were also recently mentioned in a piece in The New York Amsterdam News.
