Abstract


Trajan Clayton and Nic Starr write about their experiences relating to the work of August Wilson.  Trajan, winner of the 2019 August Wilson Monologue Competition, writes about how Wilson's plays are songs that "work together to relay the triumphs and struggles of what it means to be black."  In his segment, Nic writes about how, through August Wilson, he has gratefully gained relationships with an "army of talented brothers and sisters, and many inspiring mentors."
