During the Harlem Renaissance, Harlem was filled with black writers and artists eager to share their ideas and work with the world. The Crisis, the monthly magazine of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, was founded in 1910. Its first editor, W. E. B. Du Bois, was already one of the leading public figures, scholars, and intellectuals in U.S., and the publication gave him a regular public forum for sharing his views. Opportunity was created in 1923 as the monthly magazine of the National Urban League. Opportunity also published work by emerging black writers and was especially influential because of its annual literary contests.
