According to multiple reports, Amazon Studios has purchased the rights to The Fighting Shirley Chisholm which will star Viola Davis.
The film will be directed by Maggie Betts produced Viola Davis and her husband Julius Tennon under JuVee Productions and Stephanie Allain and Mel Jones under Homegrown Pictures.
The movie will tell the story of U.S. Rep. Shirley Chisholm, the first black woman in congress and also the first woman and the first black person to seek a major American political party’s nomination for president.
Chisholm, who lived from 1924 to 2005, is a notable a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
