Technology and Social Justice - Whatcom READS Online
Clyde Ford watched his father struggle against racism as the first black software engineer in America, hired by IBM in 1946. These challenges came from bigoted individuals within IBM as well as IBM’s corporate involvement in human rights abuses. Author, scholar, and activist, Clyde Ford shows how the issues his father encountered are still present in high-tech today, and what concerned citizens must do to support and advocate for human and civil rights in the modern technological age.
