Ford Men of Courage: Andrew Young Film Series offers a unique perspective on civil rights from an icon of the movement

Ford Motor Company Fund’s Men of Courage initiative has joined forces with the Andrew Young Foundation to present a series of monthly films documenting important milestones and renowned leaders of the civil rights movement.

Hosted by Andrew Young – the former United Nations Ambassador, U.S. Congressman, and Civil Rights Icon – the Men of Courage: Andrew Young Film Series focuses on the difficult journey, historic achievements, and inspiring moments that still resonate today.

“Andrew Young is a living legend in the continuing struggle for equal rights,” said Pamela Alexander, director, Ford Motor Company Fund. A Ford Freedom Award Scholar and Men of Courage champion, Ambassador Young continues to inspire generations of all ages and all walks of life with his commitment and experience in the cause of freedom.

New films will premiere on the third Thursday of each month throughout 2021 on the Men of Courage, YouTube, and Facebook pages.

With a mission to advance the narrative of African American men, since 2015 Ford Fund’s Men of Courage has recognized Black men across the United States for their many achievements and contributions to our communities and our world.
