Description

The Luminal Theater's outdoor screening series the CINEMA GARDEN PARTY returns!


CHISHOLM '72: UNBOUGHT & UNBOSSED

directed by Shola Lynch


Pioneering Bedford-Stuyvesant based politician Shirley Chisholm is the subject of this lauded documentary.

The nation's first African-American congresswoman, the passionate Chisholm launches a campaign for the United States presidency in the 1972 election, and wins an impressive amount of support, given the era and the still-prevailing prejudices of many voters. The film takes a close look at her presidential run, providing interviews with Chisholm and the dedicated individuals who worked on her groundbreaking campaign.


presented by The Luminal Theater and the Hancock Community Backyard Garden Park


The Cinema Garden Party is sponsored, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M.
