Choropleth-maps for census tract geographical unit? (working for county fips)

Dear all,

I am trying to plot census data using plotly/figurefactories choropleth-maps.
I am specifically interested in mapping down to the Tract geographic level.

There is a good example of how this is done to the County geographic level using the associated FIPs for counties. My question is whether or not anybody knows a good way to do this for the tract level? (I have the FIPs for the tracts but the shape files don’t seem to be included in figure factor?)

fips = ....list of FIPs for counties
values = .....associated values for FIPs (e.g. %Educated)

fig = ff.create_choropleth(
    fips=fips, values=values
