Henry Ford is remembered in American lore as the ultimate entrepreneur – the man who invented assembly line manufacturing and made automobiles affordable. Largely forgotten is his side career as a publisher of anti-Semitic propaganda. This lecture is the story of Ford's ownership of the Dearborn Independent, his involvement of the defamatory articles it ran, and two Jewish lawyers, Aaron Sapiro and Louis Marshall, who each tried to stop Ford's war on Jews.
