Thank you for your support

I want to say Thank you for supporting the Queens project to Marsha Bolden. You will help me tell the stories of women like Shirley Chisholm who was the first African American woman to be elected to Congress. Even though she was born in the U.S. her mother sent her to Barbados for her early education. She said “Years later I would know what an important gift my parents had given me by seeing to it that I had my early education in the strict, traditional, British-style schools of Barbados. If I speak and write easily now, that early education is the main reason.”
