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 September 1917 issue includes an editorial, photographs, and articles about riots in East St. Louis and the subsequent peaceful demonstration, the Silent Parade in New York City on July 28, 1917.
