This Pulitzer Prize-nominated play, set in the Hill District of Pittsburgh in 1969, dramatically highlights the changing attitudes toward race in the North at the time, from the perspective of urban blacks. In one of his most affecting plays, Wilson explores a time of extraordinary change—and the ordinary people who get left behind.
