Last month, Congressman Rangel introduced a bill to bestow Shirley Chisholm with the Congressional Medal of Honor. Read more at the Congressman's website here. Chisholm and Rangel worked closely together, along with others,  to form the Congressional Black Caucus in 1971 and are pictured here on that momentous occasion. We at the Chisholm Project will be paying close attention to developments on this bill as it further exemplifies Chisholm's importance and legacy in our US history!
