Meaningful Movies

Meaningful Movies continues with a great film tonight.  “Chisholm ’72: Unbought & Unbossed” is about the amazing Shirley Chisholm. She was the first Black congresswoman, elected in 1968 and the first Black presidential candidate. She served in congress from 1969 to 1983. This showing is in celebration of Black History Month in partnership with the Vancouver NAACP.

Volunteers from the NAACP will be present and will have the book “First Families of Vancouver’s African American Community from WWII to the 21st Century” for purchase. This ongoing grassroots community project aims to document the memories, culture, contributions and heritage of these early families down through today. Its first production, a book written by Jane Elder Wulff and co-published by NAACP Vancouver in 2012 is also available at the Clark County Historical Museum, 16th & Main in Vancouver.

The film is appropriate for all ages and there is so much to discuss! As always the showing is free and at the Old Liberty Theater, doors open at 6:15, film at 7.

Hope to see you there!
