Regina King will be portraying Shirley Chisholm, the first African American woman to be elected to the United States Congress. Shirley will be vailable to tream on Netflix starting March 22.

FUN FACT: Shirley Chisholm, a trailblazing force, not only shattered political barriers but also made history as the first woman and person of color to participate in a U.S. presidential primary debate in 1972.
