Majora Carter on Women and ‘La Bronx’

The Root interviewed urban revitalization strategist and real estate developer Majora Carter about the borough and what her hopes are for future women entrepreneurs of ‘La Bronx’.

Carter’s La Bronx project is a response to what she believes is the hyper- masculine culture of ‘El Bronx’, or ‘the Bronx’ in Spanish, that tends to forget the women of color who make the borough great. Why not ‘La Bronx’? she asks.

In the revealing article, she also addressed concerns that some believe she is encouraging gentrification, responding that when real estate was cheaper, more local ownership of Bronx businesses could have helped stem the tide. She also said she’s committed to teaching Bronxites to own and develop their own businesses.

  1. More power to Majora! Good on her for all the work she is doing and has done for the Bronx despite all the naysayers!

  2. Is Majora Carter selling LaBronx Tee-Shirts in her Boogie Down Grind Café? If she is, I hope she gives equal space to the ElBronx version as well. Past misogyny is no excuse for present misandry, right?
