About this week’s film “Chisholm '72 Chisholm '72: Unbought and Unbossed”: In 1968, Shirley Chisholm becomes the first black woman elected to Congress. In 1972, she becomes the first black woman to run for president. Shunned by the political establishment, she's supported by a motley crew of blacks, feminists, and young voters. This film recounts her bid for President of the United States.
