Majora Carter

Great speech by Majora Carter, a black woman from the south Bronx.

She grew up across from a crack house. She's also the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, better known as the "Genius Grant."

Her speech is about the intersection of race, economics, and the environment, something that our teachers see everyday. Kids with asthma, communities lacking public parks, waterways (including the great Mississippi) that are little more than dumpsters...

Thanks to Guy Kawasaki for posting this.
