DATE & TIME: November 2, 2016, 6:30 p.m.

ABOUT THE FILM: Shirley Chisholm was the first African American to seek the Democratic Party presidential nomination in 1972. Faced with opposition from established politicos and the media, this documentary showcases the tenacity of Chisholm who remained unbought and unbossed throughout her campaign. In collaboration with Women In Islam, Inc., join us for a screening of Chisholm ‘72 – Unbought & Unbossed, and a talkback with director Shola Lynch, Curator of our Moving Image and Recorded Sound Division, and Dr. Niambi Carter, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Howard University and co-author of Gender and Black Presidential Politics: From Chisholm to Moseley-Braun.

For free events, we generally overbook to ensure a full house. All registered seats are released 15 to 30 minutes before start time, so we recommend that you arrive early.

Please send all press inquiries (photo, video, interviews, audio-recording, etc) at least 24-hours before the day of the program to Angela Montefinese at
