Shirley Chisholm, Robert E. Lee, & Me
As one statue goes up, another statue is torn down. Shirley Chisholm, Robert E. Lee, & Me seeks to demonstrate how both Chisholm and Lee transcended the constraints of their time and made unpopular decisions that spoke to their humanity rather than the contemporary ideologies they commonly represent.
Relating their stories with his own life, Ashley Christopher Leach celebrates the unpopular choices each of these Americans made and reinterprets how each of them should be viewed. Shirley Chisholm, Robert E. Lee, & Me urges Americans to seek commonalities, even amongst the most unlikely characters, in hopes of healing an already divided nation.
