        The Crisis: A Weapon Against Jim Crow

        This video describes W.E.B. Du Bois' role as editor of the NAACP journal The Crisis. Under Du Bois' leadership The Crisis began a crusade against atrocities perpetrated upon African Americans. With impassioned articles, readership grew to over 100,000 subscribers. After securing President Wilson’s support for desegregation in federal hiring, Du Bois was disappointed when Wilson instead gave his consent to Southern cabinet members to segregate their departments.
