august wilson 3*Touted as one of the most notable griots of all time, August Wilson continues to move audiences time and time again.

The August Wilson Century Cycle Celebration, which launched earlier this summer officially kicked off with it’s first recorded play recently.

I had the opportunity to sit down with Constanza Romero, the widow of the iconic playwright and unofficial history keeper. She shared about his impact, the meaning his legacy has for the world and her personal relationship with such an artist. Check out the interview below.

Sponsored by Lincoln Motor Company, the kick off event launched a series of recorded shows in which a collection of renown actors and actresses share in a reading of all 10 of August Wilson’s plays. Check out more information here.
