About this show

Friends gather to mourn the death of Floyd "Schoolboy" Barton, whose life was cut short before fulfilling his musical dream. Each friend shares heartfelt accounts of his life. Though comedic at times, each flashback gives perspective to a man's fight for his own humanity, self understanding, and self acceptance in the face of personal and societal ills. Seven Guitars represents the 1940s entry in Wilson's Pittsburgh Cycle, a decade-by-decade anthology of African-American life in Pittsburgh during the twentieth century.
