The film will be followed by a speaker, Dr. Niambi M. Carter, associate professor of African-American Studies at Temple University.

Dr. Carter, who focuses on american politics with a specific focus on race, will speak briefly prior to the screening and initiate a discussion afterwards about the historical significance of Ms. Chisholm's run.
