In 1926, as a challenge to the older generation that was pressuring them to only present an uplifting perspective of Black life, Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Wallace Thurman, Aaron Douglas, Bruce Nugent, Gwendolyn Bennett and John P. Davis created the journal FIRE!! : Devoted to Younger Negro Artists. With short stories, poems, and visual art, their plan was for it to be a periodical, but unfortunately only one issue was published. That issue is now a literary classic, and copies of the original are collector's items of legendary rarity. THE FIRE!! PRESS has published a faithful reproduction, which you may purchase for only $7.50.
