“If they don’t give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair,” so said the late-Hon. Shirley Chisholm.

It is in this spirit that the Government of Barbados, in association with the Caribbean Heritage Organization and the Shirley Chisholm Cultural Institute, invites you to bring a folding chair and join in a tribute to the legacy of trailblazing political icon and activist, the late Honorable Shirley Chisholm & a celebration of the historical election of Vice President Kamala Harris.
