Henry Ford played a major role in transforming the lives of African Americans in the twentieth century. By opening the door to economic opportunity for black workers at the Ford Motor Company (FMC), Ford raised expectations and hope for what was possible in America. This epilogue summarizes the relations between Henry Ford, black Ford workers, and the black community, including the host of problems that threatened Ford's automotive empire.
