Description

In 1905, Du Bois was one of the founders of the Niagara movement, formed to oppose the Atlanta Compromise. His first attempt at a magazine, Moon Illustrated Weekly, failed after thirty-four issues. His second, Horizon, became the monthly organ of the movement, designed to appeal to what he labeled the elite “talented tenth” of the Negro community. This is the earliest issue extant.
