Chisholm, First Black Congresswoman, Dies at 80

Shirley Chisholm died over the weekend. She was 80 years old. We remember the first African-American woman to serve in Congress with a bit of a speech from her retirement from Congress, part a recent interview and with a perspective on Chisholm's career with political science professor Ron Walters.
