Politician Oscar Stanton DePriest (1871-1951) was Chicago’s first black alderman and the first black congressman elected from a northern state. In 1929, De Priest made national news when first lady Lou Hoover invited his wife, Jessie Williams De Priest, to a tea for congressional wives. During his three consecutive terms (1929-1934), De Priest fought for civil rights and introduced several anti-discrimination bills. His residence from 1929-1951, is at 4536-38 S. Grand Boulevard (now King Dr.).
