Summary:
In 1972, when Shirley Chisholm, a brilliant black congresswoman from Brooklyn boldly bid for the presidency, women had barely made it out of the kitchen, and the Civil Rights Act was still new. But here was eloquent, composed, audacious Shirley Chisholm--not only the first black woman in Congress, but the first woman to run for the nation's highest office--demanding that the body politic actually represent all the American people.
