Connect to history

As part of our commitment to supporting the arts, we've partnered with acclaimed historical filmmaker Ken Burns.

Ken Burns

Bank of America is proud to sponsor the work of Ken Burns and Florentine Films. We share Ken Burns's vision to make U.S. history into a riveting narrative, not just homework, and create a lasting impact with the general public and in classrooms around the country.


Bank of America is a proud sponsor of Ken Burns’s latest documentary, COUNTRY MUSIC. Written and produced by Dayton Duncan, the series will begin airing and streaming on PBS on Sept. 15. The film follows the rise of this uniquely American art form and how its exploration of basic human truths gives us the power to share America’s story through music. Learn more about the people, stories and music covered in the film.
