The CRISIS Overview

In 1910, William Edward Burghardt Du Bois founded The Crisis magazine as the premier crusading voice for civil rights. Today, The Crisis, one of the oldest black periodicals in America, continues this mission. A respected journal of thought, opinion and analysis, The Crisis was and still remains the official publication of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and is the NAACP's articulate partner in the struggle for human rights for people of color.

Published by The Crisis Publishing Company, Inc.- a for-profit enterprise that is legally separate from the NAACP, The Crisis is a quarterly journal of civil rights, history, politics, and culture and seeks to educate and challenge its readers about issues that continue to plague African Americans and other communities of color. For 100 years, The Crisis has been the magazine of opinion and thought leaders, decision makers, peacemakers and justice seekers. It has chronicled, informed, educated, entertained and, in many instances, set the economic, political and social agenda for our nation and its multiethnic citizens.

In addition to the feature stories and "Issues and Views," each issue of The Crisis opens with the "Up Front" section, composed of news briefs of events around the country. "Crisis Forum" is a diverse section offering readers highlights of the arts and the culture in which we live. "NAACP Today" brings readers the news about the oldest and largest civil rights organization in the country. Except for the stories featured in "The NAACP Today," the opinions expressed in the pages of The Crisis may not represent the official position of the NAACP.
