Take Them To The Big Screen: 10 Black Women Who Deserve A Biopic

- By

Shirley Chisholm

Unbought and unbossed, Chisholm was the first black woman elected to Congress and the first black person (period) to run as a major party candidate for president of the United States, receiving 152 ballot votes at the 1972 Democratic Convention. She was also an fierce fighter for women and women rights including the right to choose and equal pay. And encouraging the next generation of fierce fem-positive women (and men) is exactly the reason why we need to see her story played out on the big screen

Who should play her: Regina King or Camille Winbush (best known as Vanessa on The Bernie Mac Show and Lauren on The Secret Life of the American Teenager) would both be exceptional choices.
