Summary note
Brooklyn Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm campaigned to become the Democratic Party's presidential nominee in 1972. From the announcement of her candidacy in January to the Democratic National Convention in Miami that July. Chisholm's fight for inclusion encompassed all Americans "who agree that the institutions of this country belong to all of the people who inhabit it." Shunned by the political establishment, Chisholm asks people of color, feminists and young voters for their support to "reshape our society and take control of our destiny ..." To the surprise of many, voters responded.
