Directed by Shola Lynch | 2004

Already the first black woman elected to Congress, Brooklyn politician Shirley Chisholm made history once again when she launched her 1972 campaign for president. This timely documentary recounts her bold challenge to establishment power structures as she pushed a defiantly progressive platform that energized a coalition of feminists, people of color, and young voters while raising the question: in American politics, whose voices get to be heard?

Post-screening Q&A
With director Shola Lynch, moderated by Michelle Materre (Curator/Producer, Creatively Speaking Film Series and Associate Professor of Media Studies, The New School)
