Book Launch: Anastasia C. Curwood presents Shirley Chisholm: Champion of Black Feminist Power Politics
In conversation with Barbara Winslow
Shaking up New York and national politics by becoming the first African American congresswoman and, later, the first Black major-party presidential candidate, Shirley Chisholm left an indelible mark as an "unbought and unbossed" firebrand and a leader in politics for meaningful change. Anastasia C. Curwood interweaves Chisholm's public image, political commitments, and private experiences to create a definitive account of a consequential life. Join us for a celebration of the life of Shirley Chisholm and a discussion on how far we’ve come—and how far we have yet to go for true equality.
