“August Wilson’s name is synonymous with African American culture.”
This message, as stated on the August Wilson African American Cultural Center website, is a strong representation of how the author used his talents to educate, inspire and leave an impact on his community.
Since its 2009 opening, the AWAACC has been dedicated to the celebration of Black culture and Wilson’s legacy. In recognition of Black History Month, the center will be hosting live performances from poet Danny Simmons, Broadway star Stephanie Mills and more.
