Henry Ford’s great, great-grandson, Henry Ford III, has joined the board at the New York-based Ford Foundation. It’s the first time in more than 40 years that a Ford family member who works as an executive for the automaker has joined the foundation’s board. How will police officers in Detroit respond to a member of the Ford family and an auto executive for the Ford Motor Company from their hometown working with the radical Ford Foundation to defund police departments across America?
Known as Sonny within the family, Ford III is a former teacher. He earned a B.A. from Dartmouth College and an M.B.A. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sloan School of Management.
