SHIRLEY CHISHOLM AND BLACK FEMINIST POWER POLITICS
A Speaks-Warnock Lecture
with Professor Anastasia Curwood
In 1972, Shirley Chisholm’s presidential run was a historic first: She was the first Black person to run on a major party ticket, and the first woman to run on the Democratic party ticket. Dr. Curwood will explain Chisholm’s significance as a Black feminist politician in our national politics in the civil rights era and beyond.
Anastasia Curwood is Hallam Professor and Chair of History and Director of the Commonwealth Institute for Black Studies at the University of Kentucky. She has written Stormy Weather: Middle-Class African American Marriages Between the Two World Wars and Shirley Chisholm: Champion of Black Feminist Power Politics.
