August Wilson Society

August Wilson Society Membership

The August Wilson Society (AWS) was established at Howard University in Spring 2006 to develop multiple ways of sustaining and passing along August Wilson’s legacy.

This fundamental mission is reflected in the interdisciplinary scope of the Society’s charter membership as well as in projects already slated to delve more deeply into the largely untapped interdisciplinary spectrum of his work.

Join us in our efforts to explore God’s wide-open closet! Help us discover the untold gifts and inspiring genius of August Wilson.
