Trib Live: Pitt Library System acquires August Wilson archive

Trib Live: Pitt Library System acquires August Wilson archive. “The University of Pittsburgh Library System (ULS) has acquired the August Wilson archive with the help of Wilson’s widow, Constanza Romero, executor of the playwright’s estate. Wilson, a prolific playwright who left his native Pittsburgh in 1978, achieved worldwide acclaim for his American Century Cycle — 10 plays that convey the Black experience in each decade of the 20th century. All 10 have been produced on Broadway and two earned Wilson the Pulitzer Prize for Drama — ‘Fences’ and ‘The Piano Lesson.'”
