HarperCollins Author Signs an Agreement With a Premiere Black-Owned Management Company That Diversifies Representation

Award-winning HarperCollins author Clyde W. Ford has signed a management agreement with Four Screens, the production, development, and management firm specializing in diversity representation. Ford is well-known for his award-winning book Think Black: A Memoir, the story of his relationship with his father, John Stanley Ford, the first Black software engineer in America. Clyde has been a featured guest on Oprah, NPR, and C-SPAN/BookTV.

Ford’s work includes Precious CargoWhiskey Gulf, and The Hero with An African Face, a work of nonfiction that garnered critical acclaim and has served as the basis of teaching African mythological concepts to Black screenwriters. He is also a winner of the prestigious Zora Neale Hurston-Richard Wright Award.

“There’s a rich and deep pool of stories that come from the Black experience in America,” Ford says. “I’ve been part of that tradition of Black storytelling through my books, and now I’m thrilled to have signed with Four Screens so they can help me bring these stories to film and screen.”
