Shirley chisholm


Shirley Chisholm at a presidential campaign rally.

"That I am a national figure because I was the first person in 192 years to be at once a congressman, black and a woman proves, I think, that our society is not yet either just or free."

- Shirley Chisholm

Quoted by Donna Brazile in the forward to the Unbought & Unbossed 40th Anniversary edition.

You are the Honorable Shirley Chisholm. You represent New York's 12th congressional district in the US House of Representatives. You made history by being the first black woman to run for the the Democratic party's nomination for president in 1972.

When you announced your candidacy with no establishment support, who knew you would make it this far? You have earned your place with the party leadership and the nominee, George McGovern, on stage after his acceptance speech.

McGovern is concluding his speech so you step onto an elevator to descend to the convention floor. You arrive on the floor but the door refuses to open! A note falls from the ceiling. It reads:

Want to claim your rightful spot on stage? Figure out these codes to unlock the elevator!

The establishment is blocking you one last time! Figure out the codes to get unbought, unbossed, and unlocked to claim your rightful spot among the leaders of the Democratic party!
