Purple Pop Art… SHIRLEY!

Shirley Chisholm, the first Black U.S. Congresswoman, was creative and innovative in her 1972 run for United States President. Her campaign slogan “Unbought and Unbossed” inspired many.

Shirley is my example of a creator and innovator as we observe United Nations World Creativity and Innovation Day on April 21. Of note, learners can also look to history for creative innovators as inspiration.

Creating pop art from primary sources is a hands on way to learn about, celebrate and share history heroes. The original primary source image can be found in the Library of Congress.
