    In honor of Presidents Day, we’re delving into the lives of presidential candidates, past and present, with a connection to Brooklyn. First up at 9:45, we look at how the lives of three presidential front-runners have intersected with Brooklyn.

    Then at 10:30 we profile Shirley Chisholm, the first black woman elected to Congress. She ran for U.S. President in 1972. Enjoy and happy Presidents Day!
