American Family Insurance is an underwriter of the film, “American Masters: Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise," premiering nationwide on Tuesday, Feb. 21 at 8 p.m. on PBS (check local listings). The thought-provoking film reflects on how important events of history, culture, and the arts shaped Dr. Maya Angelou’s life. Her work has become a global symbol of peace, humility and freedom.
