While many were beginning to organize the fight for America to live up to its promise that “All men are created equal,” Shirley Chisholm’s trailblazing life promoted us to consider the equality of all humanity.
Chisholm Trail Memorial is a bold and timeless dedication to Shirley Chisholm, supported by her own powerful words. Her inspiring quotes are embedded into the ground on the sidewalk leading up to the Memorial Sculpture. This trail tempers visitors to the mindset of this great woman as they approach her monumental bronze representation framed by vertical jets of water and light. LINK TO PROPOSAL
