DUPONT CIRCLE & STRIVERS' SECTION, AFRICAN AMERICAN HERITAGE TRAIL
Strivers' Section and Dupont Circle, both historic districts, attracted African Americans of means in the first half of the 20th century. The Strivers' Section is bounded by 16th, 19th, and T streets and Florida Avenue, NW, just west of the Dupont Circle neighborhood. Legal strategist Charles Hamilton Houston and literary light Georgia Douglas Johnson were among those who called this area home.
