Aaron Douglas was an artist and muralist who came to fame during the years of the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s-30s. Although he’s most known today for his paintings, he did a lot of illustration work back in the day for various book covers and magazines, especially The Crisis and Opportunity, as well as the cover of the 1926 publication of Fire!!. (You can get a full-sized reproduction of Fire!! here.) Here are some favorite Aaron Douglas magazine covers (and one playbill cover).
