About This Item: 
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. August Wilson is one of the most significant American playwrights of the 20th century. His plays are vibrant depictions of the African-American experience and have earned prestigious recognition including Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. At the center of his oeuvre is the Pittsburgh or Century Cycle, ten plays set (but for one) in the Pittsburgh's Hill District, each depicting life in a different decade. The plays are among the most significant works in American Theater. This book presents August Wilson and his famous cycle, along with a historical and cultural look at the city of Pittsburgh and the Hill District. Project Webster represents a new publishing paradigm, allowing disparate content sources to be curated into cohesive, relevant, and informative books. To date, this content has been curated from Wikipedia articles and images under Creative Commons licensing, although as Project Webster continues to increase in scope and dimension, more licensed and public domain content is being added. We believe books such as this represent a new and exciting lexicon in the sharing of human knowledge.
