Collection Description (Extant): The Shirley Chisholm Project of Brooklyn Women's Activism is a repository of women's grassroots social activism in Brooklyn since 1945 and ongoing in the present. In the spirit of Chisholm's legacy as a path breaking community and political activist, the project will also follow the many paths she pioneered, by including materials representing the wide range of women's grassroots activism throughout the borough. The project collects oral histories, including documents and other materials, from people who knew or worked with Chisholm, as well as from the extraordinary diversity of women's activist organizations in Brooklyn since 1945.
