Shirley Chisholm At Democratic National Convention

Come view this powerful 2004 documentary (directed by Shola Lynch, 77 minutes) following the career of Shirley Chisholm, the first black woman to ever run for President of the United States. This provocative film about a woman who demonstrated “the sheer will and refusal to accept the status quo” will teach you more about why artist Cary Leibowitz made reference to Chisholm in his work.
