How Cool is This? The Crisis Digitized!

The NAACP’s Crisis magazine is available through the Modernist Journals Project, a collaborative effort of Brown University and the University of Tulsa.  Volumes 1-23, spanning November 1910 through April 1922 have been digitized.

Google has also digitized Crisis and offers a more complete archive, though lacks the first five issues.

Crisis is an amazing chronicle of African American history, especially issues from the early years.   And, the cover from the 1910s and 1920s, beautiful, simply beautiful.

P. you’ll be happy to know the scans a pretty good!

    Yes, I found these some weeks ago and I agree, they are wonderful. This is an outstanding window into how the world looked in the early 20th century. Google books has a very nice collection of African American periodicals. Well worth looking at.
