The Crisis Soldier's issue
About the Project
The Crisis is the official magazine of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Founded by W. E. B. Du Bois (editor), Oswald Garrison Villard, J. Max Barber, Charles Edward Russell, Kelly Miller, W. S. Braithwaite, and Mary Dunlop Maclean, The Crisis has been in continuous print since 1910, making it the oldest African American-led publication in the world. The June 1918 “Soldier’s Issue” focuses on African Americans fighting in World War I. Help us transcribe the ads, articles, and images in The Crisis and learn about the experiences of African American soldiers, the opinions of African American thought leaders, and the effects on African American lives during World War I.
