“August Wilson provided me with access, our friendship and his mentorship stemmed from his recognition of my passion for stories rooted in the African diaspora. He provided me with a guided tour through his process of developing his characters, plays and ideas in hopes that I could continue this work and expose and expand its audience reach.” (Sanders)
