Abstract:

Art collector Susan Cayton Woodson was born in Seattle, Washington on October 16, 1918, growing up learning about the legacy of her ancestry - a lineage that included the first African American senator, great-grandfather Hiram R. Revels, and the publisher of Seattle's first black newspaper, grandfather Horace Roscoe Cayton. In 1940, Woodson moved to Chicago, escorted by Paul Robeson, a friend of her siblings. She soon befriended many leading artists, intellectuals and activists from the WPA period and Chicago Renaissance, including Eldzier Cortor, Langston Hughes, Ted Ward and Richard Wright. Her love of art led her to form relationships with the city's great artists, and she began amassing a collection of works from these important eras. Woods passed away on January 21, 2013. The Susan Woodson Gallery housed the world's leading collection of art from the Chicago Renaissance.
