BOX X:761-774 Part X: Crisis File, 1919-2018
The Crisis File series contains material related to Crisis, the official magazine of the NAACP. The majority of the records relate to advertising and finances during the 1970s and 1980s. Also documented is the magazine's involvement in the American Issues Forum, a project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities in the lead-up to America's bicentennial celebration. The series includes recordings of Crisis Today, a radio program broadcast on WTHE in New York City between 2013 and 2015. Hosted by Laura D. Blackburne, the show addressed current issues impacting the African American community, including voting, education, health, poverty, technology, police brutality, and the deaths of Eric Garner and Freddie Gray. Frequent and notable guests included David Dinkins and John Lewis, attorneys James Meyerson and Joseph Haynes Davis, and NAACP leaders Roslyn Brock, Hazel N. Dukes, Myrlie Evers-Williams, Ben Jealous, Lorraine Miller, and Hilary O. Shelton.
Material types include correspondence, memoranda, reports, subscriber surveys, media kits, and printed matter. Radio programs and some audio versions of articles are in digital audio formats.
