    William Edward Burghardt Du Bois was an American sociologist and a civil rights activist. He also worked as the Director of Publicity and Research for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). As part of his job, he edited a monthly magazine. He named this magazine The Crisis due to a poem of the same name written by Mary White Ovington, a white abolitionist. Moreover, in his magazine, Du Bois published essays and other works written by white and black women who were also women's suffrage advocates as a way of showing his support for the Women's Rights Movement.
