This short audiobook for kids recounts the life of Shirley Chisholm, the first Black woman to be elected to Congress. Expertly narrated by Adenrele Ojo, Chisholm's story takes her from childhood in Barbados and New York to the U.S. House of Representatives. Ojo captures Chisholm's spirited, rebellious personality and passion for politics. Ojo's clear voice and even pacing make it easy for young listeners to follow along. By infusing her narration with emotion and enthusiasm, Ojo keeps listeners interested, inspiring them to dare to ask questions and take on the world as the formidable Chisholm did.
