Produced in part by the National Black Programming Consortium, Shola Lynch's Chisholm '72: Unbought and Unbossed is a documentary about the 1972 presidential campaign of American legislator Shirley Chisholm. After becoming the first black woman elected to Congress in 1968, Chisholm ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1972. During her time representing New York state in the U.S. House of Representatives, she fought for women's rights, educational reform, and an end to the Vietnam War. Though she built strong grassroots support, she went unnoticed by the mainstream press. The nomination went to Senator George McGovern from South Dakota, who lost the election to incumbent President Richard Nixon. Unbought and Unbossed is also the name of a book Chisholm published in 1970 by Houghton Mifflin. Chisholm '72 was part of the documentary competition at the Sundance Film Festival before receiving its broadcast premiere on the PBS series P.O.V. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide
