Writing and the BluesStreaming Video - 2005
Everyone has to find his own song, says Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson, and he found his in the blues. From music and literature he has shaped a philosophy of life and some of the country's most compelling dramas, including Ma Rainey's Black Bottom and Fences. In this program, Wilson talks about finding an African American cultural identity and what he sees as the false portrayal of black America on television. A Bill Moyers special.
