Lit Fridays is a literary-focused, virtual salon presented by the August Wilson African American Cultural Center (AWAACC), featuring conversations and guest performances on the last Friday of each month via Facebook Live and Zoom Webinar. All conversations are moderated by AWAACC Literary Curator, Jessica Lanay.
During the next Lit Friday features Laurence Glasco, Associate Professor of History at the University of Pittsburgh. Since coming to the Pitt’s History Department in 1969, Laurence has focused on African American history, both locally and globally. Professor Glasco has studied the history of Black Pittsburgh for the past decade. He researched and narrated the recent exhibition on slavery in early Pittsburgh, “Free at Last?” Glasco is now finishing up a biography of August Wilson and is also working on a biography of K. Leroy Irvis, African American Speaker of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
Lit Fridays with Dr. Laurence Glasco will be held virtually on Friday, January 29 at 6:00 pm. For more information, or to register, visit the Lit Fridays event page.
