Walking Tour of August Wilson’s Hill District

June 4, 2011 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


With PHLF’s new guidebook in hand, August Wilson: Pittsburgh Places in His Life and Plays, and guides from PHLF and the Hill District, will lead a walking tour from Crawford to Kirkpatrick Street, along Bedford, Wylie, and Centre Avenues. They will point out places in the Hill associated with August Wilson’s childhood––and brought to life in his ten plays chronicling the African American experience in each decade of the twentieth century. Bring a water bottle and wear a sun hat and comfortable shoes!

The walk is strenuous, including uphill and downhill climbs.
