A 2019 Celebration of Black History Month

Join us for a special celebration of Black History Month at the August Wilson Center for African American Culture, featuring renowned playwright, actress and educator Anna Deavere Smith.

The free event, jointly hosted by PNC, Pitt and UPMC, features a networking reception with food and refreshments followed by Smith’s special presentation titled “Snapshots: Portrait of a World in Transition.”

In “Snapshots,” Smith will perform portrayals of people she has interviewed from across America who come from all walks of life. The portrayals will recreate “a diversity of emotions and points of view of controversial issues.”

Please register here and contact diversity@pitt.edu with any questions.

  • Smith’s presentation begins at 6 p.m.
