Zakiya Carr Johnson & Marta Celestino

Mapping Constellations

Zakiya Carr Johnson is principal at ODARA Solutions in Atlanta, Georgia. She was born in Northern California (raised in Nairobi aka East Palo Alto). For her, Black liberation means embracing the talent of the African Diaspora without borders. Would it be odd to say her parents planned to raise a woke child? She attended preschool at the Pan African People’s Organization. She will be co-hosting a table conversation with Marta Celestino on the importance of building strong bonds across language and nationality and tapping into our collective potential. #buildbridges 

Marta Celestino is a managing partner at Ebony English in São Paulo, Brazil, where she was born and raised. Black liberation means we recognize ourselves as a diaspora people and appreciate the plurality of black culture inside and outside of Africa, the source of our identity. Marta became woke when at 12, her teacher introduced her and her class to the subject of black consciousness. She will be co-hosting a table conversation with Zakiya Carr Johnson on the importance of building strong bonds across language and nationality and tapping into our collective potential.
