Shirley Chisholm spoke here...

Shirley Chisholm was a notable figure in her day. She was the first black woman elected to Congress in 1968 and was also the first major party black candidate, in the 1972 campaign. In 1983 she was the undergraduate commencement speaker at Brockport. She is shown here with then President Van De Wetering. This slide is part of a massive collection of photographs the archives is currently processing which represent 30 years of campus photographer Jim Dusen's work.
