Playwright August Wilson Dies

Internationally renowned playwright August Wilson died Sunday at the age of 60 after a battle with liver cancer.

Wilson achieved success with his plays Piano Lessons, Fences and Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. Still, the two-time Pulitzer Prize winner may be best known for chronicling the 20th century African-American experience. Marcie Sillman of KUOW has this remembrance.
