Britannica Concise

U.S. playwright. Born in Pittsburgh, he was largely self-educated. A participant in the black aesthetic movement, he cofounded and directed Pittsburgh's Black Horizons Theater (1968), published poetry in black journals, and produced several plays, incl. Jitney (1982), before his Ma Rainey's Black Bottom opened on Broadway in 1984. Inspired by the colloquial language, music, folklore, and storytelling tradition of black Americans, he continued his cycle of plays, each set in a different decade of the 20th cent., with Fences (1986, Pulitzer Prize), Joe Turner's Come and Gone (1988), The Piano Lesson (1990, Pulitzer Prize), Two Trains Running (1992), and Seven Guitars (1996).
