Majora Carter is a Peabody Award Winning Broadcaster and social entrepreneur from the South Bronx who utilizes green spaces, the built environment, and community building to tackle social inequality.

Lack of talent in communities is like species loss, affecting the whole ecosystem and health of a neighborhood.
