In honor of Black History Month, a professor in Syracuse University’s College of Arts and Sciences has published a book on American playwright August Wilson.

Sanford Sternlicht G’62, professor emeritus of English, is the author of August Wilson's Twentieth-Century Cycle Plays: A Reader's Companion (Texas Tech University Press, 2015). Described as a “short literary guide” to the iconic playwright, the book is written with teachers, theater professionals, and audiences in mind.

“August Wilson was a masterful storyteller who chronicled the African American experience in the grand tradition of Eugene O’Neill and Arthur Miller,” says Sternlicht, the author or editor of more than 30 books. “By giving voice to people on the margins of society, Wilson captured universal truths about the struggle for love and dignity in the face of overwhelming odds.”
