The Crisis is the official publication of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). It features African American commentary on current affairs. In the past, it has also featured African American literature prominently, and was one of the major magazines of the Harlem Renaissance. (There is a Wikipedia article about this serial.)
The Crisis was founded in 1910 by W. E. B. Du Bois, who edited the early volumes. It was originally subtitled "A Record of the Darker Races". No issue copyright renewals were found for this serial. The first copyright-renewed contribution is from March 1940. (More details) For a time in the late 1990s and early 2000s, it was published as The New Crisis. It is still published today.
