About this show

Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson unfolds the African-American legacy in the first chronological episode of his celebrated American Century Cycle — a soaring, mystical tale of a man desperate for redemption in 1904 Pittsburgh. Aunt Ester, a 285-year-old "soul cleanser," sends him on a spiritual journey that dissects the nature of freedom amidst oppression and spurs him to take up the mantle of justice.
