    KEYNOTE SPEAKER

    Majora Carter

    Majora Carter is award-winning urban revitalization strategist and corporate consultant. She is the founder of Sustainable South Bronx and Green for All, and has worked at the intersection of race, place and environment for over two decades. Her work in the South Bronx has transformed a once blighted community into a hub of opportunity and advancement for residents of all backgrounds.

    Carter's work has won major awards, including a MacArthur 'genius' Grant, a Peabody Award, the Rudy Bruner Award Silver Medal, nine honorary doctorates, and accolades from various professional groups. She is quoted on the walls of the Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture: “Nobody should have to move out of their neighborhood to live in a better one.”
