An Act of Honor

Record #:
Wilmington native Willis Richardson, playwright, director, and federal government worker, was a pioneer in the black theater movement and Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s. Shortly before his death in 1977, a group of African American actors in Wilmington formed the Willis Richardson Players in honor of the playwright. The group performs several works each season that are of interest to all audiences. Performances take place at the Thalian Hall Center for Performing Arts.
