Wilson with teacup“August was listening.  He spent his entire life listening and not just with his ears but with his intellect and with his heart. You’ve probably read accounts or heard accounts of places that he would frequent in Pittsburgh and the people who would be there. He grew up listening to old and older men, some of whom had come through slavery, had come at the very end of it, listening to them talk. And he caught and embodied the rhythms of speech,” Phylicia Rashad.

PBS American Masters special on August Wilson is slated for Friday, February 20 @ 9 p.m. on PBS.
