1461 S Street, NWDuring the 1920s and 1930s, this house hosted a Saturday evening literary salon, welcoming such luminaries as Alice Dunbar Nelson, Angelina Grimké, Langston Hughes, Alain Locke, Kelly Miller, and Jean Toomer. Poet and hostess Georgia Douglas Johnson (1877-1966) graduated from the Oberlin Conservatory before moving to Washington in 1910. Here her writing career flourished, making her a nationally recognized figure of the New Negro Renaissance. Besides poetry, Johnson wrote songs, short stories, plays, and a syndicated newspaper column, "Homely Philosophy." Johnson's husband, attorney Henry Lincoln Johnson, was appointed by President Taft as recorder of deeds for the city in 1912.Caption:Georgia Douglas Johnson, 1920sMoorland-Spingarn Research Center, Howard University
