Biographical:
Ellen Haynes Allen-Green was born in Port Tampa, Florida on May 19, 1915 to Samuel L. Haynes and Mamie Warmack Haynes. Educated in the public schools in Port Tampa, she went on to become a leader and activist in the civil rights movement. She became active in the NAACP in 1955, immediately being elected recording secretary. From there she became the financial secretary, then vice-president, and finally she was elected president in 1959, giving her the distinction of becoming the first active female president of the Tampa NAACP. As an activist, Ellen Green participated in demonstrations that took her to the theaters and lunch counters of Tampa; behind the lines, she busied herself planning programs and raising money. In 1961, she had a heart attack and stepped down as president. Health issues aside, Green continued to remain active in the NAACP as well as the National Council of Negro Women, the West Tampa Advisory Council, the Southwest Civic Club, and the YWCA. Ms. Green was also very active in the Mt. Zion AME Church in Port Tampa. Her lifetime of service included being a Sunday school student, secretary, assistant superintendent and superintendent for 25 years, and a junior teacher for more than 40 years. Additionally, she served as an usher for 54 years. In the workplace, Ellen Green spent 47 years at Afro-American Life Insurance, 29 years at Central Life Insurance, and 11 years at the Pallbearers Grand Union as the Financial Secretary. Ellen Green was twice a widow; her marriage to Ernest D. Allen produced her son Carl, daughter Irma, and provided a stepson named Clyde. At the time of her death in 2006, Ellen Green was a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and a great-great-grandmother. In honor of her accomplishments, the first floor reading room in the Port Tampa City Library is dedicated as the Ellen H. Green Reading Room.
