Carter, an urban planning visionary and MacArthur “genius” grant winner, believes that urban renewal must include eco-friendly practices as well as job training and environmentally sustainable economic development. She now promotes her pioneering efforts through her own economic planning firm, the Majora Carter Group, and her pioneering ideas have been put into practice in the South Bronx as well in New Orleans and several North Carolina coastal towns.
