African American Cultural Center

African American Cultural Center

One of only two major arts institutions in the world named for Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright and Pittsburgh native August Wilson, the African American Cultural Center engages regional and national audiences in its mission of preserving, presenting, interpreting, celebrating, and shaping the art, culture, and history of African Americans utilizing the rich history, legacy and culture of African Americans from Western Pennsylvania as a foundation.

From its new home in a vibrant Cultural District, the sleekly modern African American Cultural Center offers multiple exhibition galleries, a 486-seat theater for performances in all genres, an education center for classes, lectures and hands-on learning, and dazzling spaces for community programs and events. The Center is a place like no other for experiencing theater, dance, music, history, film, literature, visual art, interactive education, and spectacular entertainment, all under one roof.

A member company of The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust's shared services program, the African American Cultural Center collaborates with the Trust on many projects and community outreach programs.
