Summary
In 2005, playwright August Wilson published the final installment of his ten-part magnum opus, Pittsburgh Cycle-ten separate but thematically-linked plays about African American life, each set in a different decade of the 20th century. "I think my plays offer white Americans a different way to look at black Americans," he told The Paris Review. The plays went on to win two Pulitzer Prizes for Drama. In this program, filmed before Pittsburgh Cycle was complete, Wilson discusses his ongoing work on the project
