The CRISIS in World War I

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, Syl Woolford will present a lecture on African-American participation in the Great War.
During World War I 300,000 African-Americans served in the military. With the objective of showing how African-Americans were helping the win the war, W. E. B. DuBois, editor of the NAACP’s magazine The CRISIS, traveled to France to report on the progress of the war. What DuBois found was a story of the continued struggles which African-Americans faced in trying to achieve first class citizenship.
