August Wilson’s monumental Century Cycle is a collection of 10 dramas chronicling the Black experience in America, one set during each decade of the 20th century.

"King Hedley II," number nine in the series, is a powerful, gritty and gripping play set in the 1980s about an ex-convict trying to rebuild himself and his community all while the ghosts of the past haunt him.

Actor Naheem Garcia stars in the play as Elmore. He explained today on The Culture Show, that playing the role is unfinished business. Garcia talked to host Jared Bowen about his enduring relationship to August Wilson’s work, currently presented by Actors' Shakespeare Project through April 7.
