Summary, etc.:
In 1972, Brooklyn Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm campaigned to become the Democratic Party's presidential nominee. Chisholm's fight for inclusion encompassed all Americans "who agree that the institutions of this country belong to all of the people who inhabit it." Shunned by the political establishment, Chisholm asks people of color, feminists and young voters for their support to "reshape our society and take control of our destiny ..." To the surprise of many, voters responded.
This documentary follows the 1972 campaign waged by Shirley Chisholm, the first African-American woman to run for a major party's nomination for United States President. Chisholm first made her mark on American political history when, in 1968, she became the first African-American woman elected to Congress, representing New York.
