Bonita 4 Durham
Durham, North Carolina
Born and raised in Durham, Bonita’s family roots are deeply entrenched in the Merrick-Moore Community (MMC). The daughter of the late Samuel and Hattie W. Green, Bonita was taught to work hard, live a life of integrity, and take pride in her community. The Greens were one of the original founding families of the MMC. Moving into their home in 1948, Bonita’s family proudly settled into the community. Mt. Zoar Baptist Church was Bonita’s home church, where her father was chairman of the Deacon Board, and her mother was a Deaconess. A product of the Durham Public Schools, Bonita attended Merrick-Moore Elementary School and graduated from Southern Durham High School.This was Bonita’s community. A community where everyone knew each other, where neighbors were there to lend a helping hand. That was the type of community in which Bonita grew and thrived and with her leadership, Durham can have that sense of community again.
