Shirley Chisholm

On Jan. 31, 2014, the postal service government will honor Shirley Chisholm, the politician who shattered race and gender barriers when she became the first Black woman elected to Congress in 1972. 

The stamp uses a portrait of Chisholm by artist Robert Shetterly from a series of paintings titled Americans Who Tell the Truth.
