The more I do this work the clearer I become that my art is my contribution to the battle for equity. Standing proudly on the ground of the dirt beneath the floor underneath the door of no return — I walk with Wilson looking backwards Nothing will ever be the same for me. Nor should it be for if ignorance is bliss then knowing is most likely painful. I will stay the path rocks and all until the song is sung.

I wanted to let you know that I direct the August Wilson Society through the American Literature Association. Next year’s conference (May 2016) is slated for San Francisco. I’ll put out a call for papers on the AW blog later this year (Fall 2015), for the May 2016 conference. So you can look for that. The 2016 conference is in your neck of the woods (I believe you’re in Oakland), so you might want to put it on your calendar and submit a proposal when the time comes. You may also contact me directly at any time: email@example.com Thanks and keep up the good work. Mike Downing
