Majora Carter

In response to JP Rangaswami’s reflection on women as multi-taskers, a discussant responded:

"...Talking about women and multitasking and adding in another trait, nothing beats the sheer passion of Majora Carter's talk."

What a delightful coincidence! I threw a stone and the ripple comes back to me!

Majora Carter is a friend and fellow activist. We met at the conference on “Creativity & the City” in Amsterdam in 2003, where both of us were speakers, on the theme of social and enironmental justice.

Majora is the founder of Sustainable South Bronx in New York, an organization dedicated to community development and sustainable projects that create jobs, protect the environment and bring green spaces to the inner city. She is a 2005 MacArthur Fellow and a 2002 Open Society Institute Community Fellow.

In this lecture, Majora explains her commitment to environmental justice and her vision for a renewed South Bronx.

All strength to you Majora!
