This prizewinning author will read from his new book about his father, John Stanley Ford, who became the first black software engineer at IBM in 1947 and had to weather his white coworkers' harassment and cruelty. Ford (junior) reflects on the cost of enduring a racist environment for both John Stanley Ford and his family, and delves into "how his hiring was meant to distract from IBM’s dubious business practices including its involvement in the Holocaust, eugenics, and apartheid."
