Technology, the Holocaust, and Human Rights

Hosted By: CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center (Indiana)

Clyde Ford’s most recent book, Think Black (HarperCollins, Sept. 2019), began as a memoir about Clyde Ford’s father, John Stanley Ford, the first Black software engineer in America. But it soon became something much more, after his editor asked him to investigate his father’s relationship with Thomas J. Watson, the founder of IBM. Clyde Ford went in search of an answer. Ford was shocked, and deeply disturbed, to uncover IBM’s central role in eugenics, the Holocaust, apartheid, and racial profiling through facial recognition. What began as a story about his father, soon enlarged into a cautionary tale about the dark side of high technology and recommendation about what must change.
