Synopsis: “Shirley,” directed by John Ridley, delves into Shirley Chisholm’s groundbreaking 1972 presidential campaign. Chisholm, the first Black woman elected to Congress and the first woman to vie for the Democratic nomination for President, faces the challenges of misogynoir head-on. The film captures her unwavering determination to break barriers and become a symbol of political hope. From her entrance into Congress to a powerful group photo on the Capitol steps, “Shirley” showcases Chisholm’s resilience amidst adversity. She fearlessly confronts snide remarks with pride and unwavering composure. The film emphasizes Chisholm’s belief that politics should belong to the people, rejecting the notion of timidity and even advising Gottlieb that humility can be a form of arrogance. While “Shirley” admirably portrays its subject, it primarily functions as a history lesson, briefly touching upon key moments in Chisholm’s timeline rather than delving into her personal story.
