Majora Carter

Slide background

Majora Carter is a living legend who is already quoted on the walls of the Smithsonian:  “Nobody should have to move out of their neighborhood to live in a better one.” Her clarity of purpose is woven throughout her various community revitalization projects. Part real estate developer, part job training & placement guru, Majora‘s R&D in the South Bronx has inspired and informed sustainable economic development projects across the US and abroad.  Her insights are informed by an incredibly varied list of clients and project partners, and present challenging questions to be shared long after her talks conclude.

A total force, Majora Carter is a MacArthur fellow and a Peabody award winning broadcaster with 8 honorary PhD’s.  Using story and style, she unravels long-clung-to narratives about opportunity and place, and presents new and pragmatic ways to build a future we can all be proud of.

This is an exciting conversation worth joining...
