Boston U.S. Rep.-elect Ayanna Pressley will have the Capitol Hill office once used by the trailblazing Shirley Chisholm.
In 1968, Chisholm became the first black woman ever elected to Congress, and represented her New York congressional district for seven terms.
In November of this year, the Democrat Pressley became Massachusetts' first black woman elected to Congress. She'll represent the 7th district.
In a tweet Monday, Pressley said the office was originally given to U.S. Rep.-elect Katie Hill, from California, who wanted Pressley to have it.
