She worked as a public school teacher for over a decade before attending Morgan State College. In 1952 Johnson completed a degree in art education and soon after left for California to escape segregation. There she earned a master's degree at San Jose State University and a doctoral equivalency from San Francisco State University. Johnson was the first woman of color to teach in the San Jose Unified School District. She continued to teach and exhibit her works throughout the 1960's and 1970's. After she married Charles Calloway, she changed her name to Marie Johnson Calloway.
