Bwilson-by-gayley Mike Downing

My friend, Ayodele Nzinga, tells me that artist James Gayles of Oakland, Calif., has donated a portrait of “America’s Shakespeare,” August Wilson, to Oakland’s North American African Theater Troupe, The Lower Bottom Playaz

The gift is intended to help fund their production of the entirety of his American Century Cycle.

The portrait is for sale by auction with an opening bid of $1800.00. Please send all inquires to Ayodele at wordslanger@gmail.com
