A conversation with Majora Carter

At the State of the Bay conference the other day, Majora Carter gave the keynote address.

She's an environmental activist from the South Bronx who hosts a radio show called The Promised Land. She was in a bit of a hurry, but I grabbed her for a few minutes after the speech, and asked her about New Orleans, where her group's been working with the Make It Right Foundation.

We talked, too, about a project she's working on in Detroit, about what environmental justice is. (The sound's low, but you can hear her; my plans for better sound from the Marantz died with the corrupted flash card.)
