Event Description

Join the Center for Law, Policy, and Social Action, BLSA, and DiveIN for a screening of the documentary Chisholm '72: Unbought & Unbossed. The film chronicles Brooklyn Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm's 1972 campaign to become the Democratic party nominee for President. Chisholm championed the causes of the poor, the young, minorities, gays, women, and other marginalized Americans. Chisholm saw the presidential race itself as an opportunity to draw people to politics who traditionally did not participate. In her words, "I ran for the presidency, despite hopeless odds, to demonstrate sheer will and refusal to accept the status quo." Her ground-breaking campaign offered a new vision of equality and participation for all citizens, and many of the challenges she posed to "professional politicians" and "politics as usual" remain relevant today.
