Sunday Celebrating The One And Only Shirley Chisholm
Fire up your week with a trek to pay homage to #BossLady Shirley Chisholm: “Fighting Shirley” introduced more than 50 pieces of legislation and championed racial and gender equality, the plight of the poor, and ending the Vietnam War. She was a co-founder of the National Women’s Political Caucus in 1971, and in 1977 became the first black woman and second woman ever to serve on the powerful House Rules Committee.
Meet Evlyn, Michelle, the crew and I at 8:45am. We'll trek at 9:00am to explore this brand new park and nature space. Can you imagine its the largest park in Brooklyn, $20 million and inspired by one of our own. I am excited are you? Bring your camera, water and Sunday spirit for a soulful morning trek.
Some notes about the park: a surprisingly enjoyable ramble through a delightfully varied landscape of wildflower meadows, native grasslands, hidden beaches, and bustling fishing piers. Butterflies and songbirds fill the air, while cooling breezes waft in from Jamaica Bay.
Its near Starrett City or the Gateway mall.
