Solutionary Women: Majora Carter (You Have to Hear Her Speak!)

Unfortunately, I didn't get to interview this week's Solutionary Woman, Majora Carter, but I did get to hear her speak last May at a Solutions Salon put on by the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights in Oakland. And she was incredible.

Majora is the the founder and Executive Director of Sustainable South Bronx, a nonprofit working to implement, "sustainable development projects for the South Bronx that are informed by the needs of the community and the values of Environmental Justice." She is a 2005 MacArthur "Genius" Fellow, and it shows.

You can watch the video of her speech (she gave the same talk at the Solutions Salon as at the TED Conference) on the TED site here.

You have to watch the video of her talk.

You just have to.
