Hidden Figures of Madison, NJ – Their stories, our history

November 8 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 pm

Celebrating, sharing, and preserving the stories of underrepresented people of color in our history.

In person at Madison Public Library (if possible) otherwise virtual.

Speaker:  Kenisha Tucker (Bonfield)-Co-founder and Lessons Coordinator

Kenisha Tucker (Bonfield)-Co-founder and Lessons Coordinator. Is a native Jamaican-born and naturalized American who moved to Madison, NJ, in 1990.  She was raised along with her two siblings Sharela and Kamur, by our grandmother Muriel Bonfield in Madison, NJ. She graduated from Madison High School in 1999. She met her husband, Rohan Sr., at the neighborhood Friendly’s as teenagers. After getting married and living in East Stroudsburg, PA, for nine years, they returned to Madison, NJ, in November of 2011, where we are now raising our five children (Ella, Rohan Jr., Lincoln, Logan, and Ava). She earned a BA in Science and Human Development degree with a Certification in Family, Child & School at New Jersey’s Montclair State University Cum Laude and is currently pursuing an MA in Reading with a Reading Specialist Certification at the same-named University. Her vision for the Hidden Figures of Madison project was born during the summer of 2020, when our nation heard one of the loudest cries for racial justice in recent history. She hopes that the Hidden Figures of Madison project will be a platform for the untold stories in our history to be heard and celebrated.
