Visit to August Wilson’s Pittsburgh

By Mike Downing

I recently traveled to Pittsburgh to meet with representatives from the University of Pittsburgh about the August Wilson Journal.  While I was in town, I visited Mr. Wilson’s birthplace, a mural in the Hill District (which I will post separately), and his grave site.

See images below.
