Connect to history

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

Jackie Robinson

Bank of America is proud to sponsor Jackie Robinson, a two-part documentary by Ken Burns, Sarah Burns and David McMahon. The film depicts the life and accomplishments of baseball legend and civil rights pioneer Jack Roosevelt Robinson, who fearlessly crossed baseball’s color line and continued fighting discrimination after his baseball career ended. We’re proud to celebrate Jackie’s legacy and follow in his commitment to respect and equality for all.
