English: The Strivers' Section Historic District is a historic neighborhood located in the Dupont Circle area of Northwest, Washington, D.C.

Strivers' Section was historically an enclave of upper-middle-class African Americans, often community leaders, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It takes its name from a turn-of-the-century writer who described the district as "the Strivers' section, a community of Negro aristocracy." The name echoes that of Strivers' Row in Harlem, a New York City historic neighborhood of black professionals.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Strivers' Section Historic District is roughly bounded by Swann Street on the south, Florida Avenue on the north and west, the 16th Street Historic District on the east, and 19th Street on the west.
