"Unbossed & Unbowed is an entertaining, enlightening, and empowering story that comes full circle…

it’s fair to say that because of Shirley Chisholm, Kamala Harris became the first woman of color to become Vice President of the U.S. in 2020."

 

Unbossed & Unbowed is a solo show written and performed by Ingrid Griffith.

The play tells the largely unheard story of Shirley Chisholm, a Brooklyn-born politician of immigrant parents, who in the 20th century, was the first African-American woman to win a seat in Congress and to run for the Presidency.

Using humor, history, and a call for present day activism, Shirley Chisholm is back with a forthright crispness and clarity that were distinctly her, inviting audiences to consider and redefine personal success and to understand the power of social commitment.

 

Ingrid Griffith is a performer, playwright, and teaching artist of Guyanese heritage. She has appeared in numerous off-Broadway productions in and around New York City. Her first one-woman show Demerara Gold has sold-out shows across the United States and Guyana. Unbossed & Unbowed is her latest production and has been performed in select venues in New York along with performances in Barbados and Guyana.
