<iframe width=”512″ height=”376″ src=”http://video.cptv.org/viralplayer/2365417573&#8243; frameborder=”0″ marginwidth=”0″ marginheight=”0″ scrolling=”no” seamless> Recently, the PBS series, American Masters, hosted this documentary about August Wilson’s literary achievements as well as important biographical elements. While you read Fences over the holiday break, enjoy this scene to help animate your reading more. There are other scenes on-line as well, so have fun searching. Nevertheless, take time to read the text before, during or after you take in these videos. Note that James Early Jones won a Tony Award for his portrayal of Troy in 1987. Have a restful and safe vacation!
