Charles H. Wright Museum, in partnership with Ford Motor Company, launched the Ford Freedom Award program in 1999 to create a forum to celebrate and recognize individuals whose achievements brought forth lasting and positive change for African Americans – and the world. The Ford Freedom Award is an annual fundraiser for The Wright Museum, the world’s largest institution dedicated to the African-American experience.
