How I Learned What I Learned

By August Wilson
Directed by Tia James

Life lessons from a theatre giant

From one of America’s greatest playwrights comes this autobiographical journey through August Wilson’s days as a young poet, his first few jobs, a stint in jail, and his encounters with racism, music, and love as a struggling writer. This heartfelt theatrical memoir charts one man’s journey of self-discovery through adversity, and what it means to be a black artist in America.
