About the Project
W.E.B. Du Bois (1868–1963) was the founding editor of The Crisis, the official publication of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, which presented articles and essays on civil rights, history, politics, and culture. This July 1918 issue is The Crisis’s annual “Education Number,” featuring images, editorials, and articles about African American education. In addition, this issue includes Du Bois’ famous “Close Ranks” editorial urging African Americans to support the war effort.
