The Brownies' Book


June 1920 issue of The Brownies' Book, a magazine for the interests of Black children. The magazine was launched by the editors of The Crisis.


Writer, scholar and activist W.E.B. Du Bois recognized the need for young African Americans to see themselves and their concerns reflected in print. The Brownies’ Book, a monthly magazine for the “Children of the Sun … designed for all children, but especially for ours,” was his response.
