BLACK HISTORY MONTH MAGAZINES: THE CRISIS
The Crisis was founded in 1910 by W.E.B. DuBois as the magazine of the NAACP. Within nine years it reached a circulation of 100,000. It was an important venue in its early days for African American authors, including Jean Toomer, Langston Hughes, Countee Cullen, and Jessie Fauset. A complete set of issues from 1910-22 is available at The Modern Journals Project, where many of these covers came from.
