In honor of Black History Month, we are showing "Chisholm ’72 — Unbought & Unbossed", the first historical documentary on Brooklyn Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm and her campaign to become the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee in 1972. Following Chisholm from the announcement of her candidacy in January to the Democratic National Convention in Miami, Florida in July, the story is like her- fabulous, fierce, and fundamentally “right on.”

Chisholm’s fight is for inclusion, as she writes in her book The Good Fight (1973), and encompasses all Americans “who agree that the institutions of this country belong to all of the people who inhabit it.” Shunned by the political establishment, Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm asks people of color, feminists and young voters for their support to “reshape our society and take control of our destiny as we go down the Chisholm Trail in 1972.” To the surprise of many, voters responded.

"Chisholm '72" reflects Chisholm’s wit, spirit, and charisma, reminding all Americans of their power as citizens while inspiring some to join the Chisholm Trail and continue fighting “The Good Fight.” Representative Barbara Lee appears in the film to recount her experience as a volunteer in the campaign.
