Camille Olivia Hanks Cosby, Ed.D., Academic Center Auditorium
Intentionally scheduled on the eve of Election Day, this 3 + 1 screening celebrates Shirley Chisholm’s run for President of the United States. Chisholm, the first Black major-party candidate and the first woman to run for this office, not only inspired others with her “sheer will and refusal to accept the status quo,” but also through her rallying cry to “exercise the full measure of your citizenship and vote.”
3 + 1 is a community film screening and discussion program. Three film experts with diverse (and oftentimes conflicting) perspectives are featured with one empty seat for a member of the audience to occupy and participate in the dialogue.
This program is organized in partnership with the Ethel Waddell Githii Honors Program, Spelman College.
