The destinies of blacks living in America, however, took a long time and a lot of effort in order to change. Towards the end of the twentieth century, the civil rights movement – a struggle for African Americans to achieve rights equal to those of whites including equal opportunity in employment, housing, and education, as well as rights to vote- helped change their destinies. August Wilson, a well-known playwright during this time period, was famous for his plays such as Fences and The Piano Lesson. His plays are based off of his own experiences and explore a century’s worth of African American struggle and triumph. One of his plays, Fences, is about four generations of black Americans and how they have passed on a legacy of morals, mores, attitude, responsibility, and patterns.
