Description

With the financial backing and of the N.A.A.C.P. behind him, W.E.B. Du Bois used The Crisis to supplant Booker T. Washington as the leading spokesman for the Black community. Du Bois was replaced as editor by the highly respected but less controversial Roy Wilkins in 1934. Soon after this issue, Dubois started The Brownie’s Book. the first magazine designed for African American children.
