Praise

"The world does not know that a people is great until that people produces great
literature and art."    –James Weldon Johnson

"Until The Crisis Reader, no broad collection of writings from one of America’s most influential journals of opinion existed. Sondra Kathryn Wilson has remedied this amazing lacuna with her excellent edition. It will be an indispensable source from the moment of issue."
–David Levering Lewis, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning biography W. E. B. Du Bois

"The Crisis Reader offers riches from the heyday of black America’ s most significant journal. Here are all the now famous names and their now famous poems and articles, and others undeservedly unknown today. Any serious student of black literature and politics will want this volume, as will those many others who long for a look at yesterday, when black bards sang."    –Julian Bond, chairman of the board, N.A.A.C.P.
