This piece is number 16 in the Dead Feminists series, created in honor of the 2012 election-which also marked the 4th anniversary of our series. We used bright period colors as an homage to Chisholm’s 1972 Presidential campaign, as well as her own impeccable style and substance. Our edition size is 152-the number of delegates Chisholm won during the 1972 Presidential primaries.
Besides being the first serious female Presidential candidate, Shirley Chisholm was also the first African-American woman elected to Congress. She represented New York’s 12th Congressional District-one of the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy. So to help continue Shirley’s long-term service to her home city, we donated a portion of our proceeds to Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration, in recognition of the importance of serving a community long after the disaster relief efforts have ended.
