We are pleased to welcome Clyde Ford to our Lynden location for a follow-up event to his launch party for this fantastic memoir!

In this thought-provoking and heartbreaking memoir, award-winning Bellingham author, Clyde W. Ford, tells the story of his father, John Stanley Ford, the first Black software engineer in America. Think Black reveals how racism at IBM insidiously affected his father’s view of himself and their relationship.

Clyde’s the recipient of the 2006 Zora Neale Hurston-Richard Wright Award in African American Literature.
