Episode Info

"Chisholm '72: Unbought & Unbossed" chronicles Brooklyn congresswoman Shirley Chisholm's longshot candidacy for the 1972 Democratic presidential nomination. Her trek on "the Chisholm trail" marked the first time a black woman ever sought the White House (Chisholm, who died Jan. 1, 2005, was also the first black woman elected to Congress). Here, she recalls her '72 bid and the issues that underpinned it, as do some 20 other observers.
