This blog, and in particular, my soon to be published non fiction work in progress, Do Better, and Project Do Better, are dedicated to Marie and Adolphus Johnson, unsung heroes of Washington, DC. My Grandma Marie is an unsung saint of DC, for whom I have gathered information on Ancestry.com, and placed some of it on the non-paywalled WikiTree, as well.
Many thanks to Prof. William Spriggs, of Howard University, for alerting me in 2020 to the heroic actions of my adoptive great grandfather, Grandpa Johnson, during WWI, as a member of an unrewarded but heroic Colored signal corps unit, part of the 325th Field Signal Battalion.
This page will continue to be updated shortly, as I prepare to hand over the administration of the profiles I created for WikiTree’s slavery subproject, and for my family, to others.
