Starting in 1910, WEB DuBois and the NAACP published The Crisis magazine. It was a source among black Americans for news, culture, and analysis. And perhaps some of your figures were covered there. Have a look, and note that through 1922 the magazine is fully digitized at HathiTrust. Beyond that you can search and see "snippets." How can you get a full verision of an article that you can on see in "snippet?" Great question!


The Woman's Era was published out of Boston and covered news of the black women's club movement. If your research subject was active in that period, this is a source worth knowing about (and it is not a source included in other databases we have looked at.)

Alexander's Magazine is a literary and cultural magazine that includes news and biographical sketches about some of your women who were active in this period. We've already identified a sketch on Ida Jackson. Maybe someone you're looking for is there too!
