A half century ago, Shirley Chisholm—the first Black woman elected to the U.S. Congress—was a pioneer. Chisholm made her way, breaking through barriers, as a leader for more diverse political representation. This historical documentary focuses on Chisolm’s significant 1972 bid as the first woman and the first Black person to run for nomination as the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate. Her strength as a brave new candidate remained steady as she encountered struggles with a political establishment hesitant to accept her.
