Dr. G. William Domhoff on The Ford Foundation in the Inner City (TLR Note: 1-Domhoff Amazing 2- Maya Harris / Tony West Allies of Ford Foundation 3 – Tides Also Part of Network 4 – Ford/Tides Part of Scheme to Maintain Power/Control/Use African-American)

The Ford Foundation’s New York headquarters

The essay explains how and why this powerful foundation developed what might seem at first glance to be an unlikely alliance with neighborhood activists in the 1960s and 1970s, then put its primary focus on low-income housing in the 1980s. But let’s start at the grassroots level and find our way to the power elite from there.

If you were to go into a low-income, inner-city neighborhood today, whether it was predominantly white or predominantly black, you might see several locally managed nonprofit organizations called Community-Based Organizations, or CBOs. These CBOs provide social services, job training, support for neighborhood groups and new small businesses, and/or advocacy for tenant’s rights.

    Few of us have the time or the attention span to follow the machinations of the Judicial Council’s various advisory bodies. Judging by the press releases that clutter our email inboxes, many of these committees simply approve staff recommendations and pass out awards.
