Environmental activist Majora Carter founded and served as executive director of Sustainable South Bronx, a non-profit that introduced Americans to the concept of urban green-collar job training and coined the phrase “Green the Ghetto.”

Carter hosts the award-winning public radio show The Promised Land and since 2008 has run her own for-profit economic consulting company.
