Melorra and Melonie Green have lived together their whole lives — 41 years to be exact. Born one minute apart, the fraternal twins are from Memphis and have brought their Southern charm and vision to the Bay Area.

For the past decade, the Green twins have been a fixture in the Lower Haight and Fillmore neighborhoods. Every morning they walk side by side to get their coffee, wearing their trademark wide-brim hats, colorful plaid shirts and thick eyeliner. They wave to their neighbors and greet store owners until someone runs down the block to give them a big hug. Before you know it, they’re planning their next big art project. That’s what they do. They’re movers and shakers.
