Eva McPherson Clayton
The First Woman to Chair a Democratic Freshman Class

I think there is a higher expectation of us as Afro-American women because there have been so few of us. And once we are here in some mass, then they will see us as a group and we will not have to be just a Barbara Jordan or just a Shirley Chisholm, but we would be looked upon as individuals…So, I think the expectation is, in my judgment, a little too high.
