James Carter is a philanthropist, speaker, writer and an entrepreneur. A native and current resident of Meridian, MS, James believes in supporting his fellow man and empowering his community through education, sports, health, and economical development.
As a little boy, James loved speaking in church wherein his grandfather presided as a deacon. And it was his granddad who'd envisioned James speaking on large stages in front of big crowds, a vision that has actually become a reality for James, who is often invited to speak in front of large crowds due his strong public speaking skills.
James' desire to inspire the youth and bring unity to his community keeps him very active in his community. Hence, he holds an impressive number of titles within different organizations! Notably, James is currently the Executive Director of The Carter Foundation, and he is also the director of the Carter World Wide Productions LLC, an entertainment and marketing company. When James has extra time to himself, he loves to spend time with his family and strategize innovative ideas to enhance his surroundings.
James' vision for the future is to continue to have passion for the youth, produce more leaders, and to continue his endeavors to develop more non-profit organizations!
