AARP members, Friends of IPTV members and the community are invited to two free screenings of American Masters – Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise in honor of Black History Month!

This is the first feature documentary about the incomparable Dr. Maya Angelou (1928-2014), best known for her autobiography I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. Distinctly referred to as “a redwood tree, with deep roots in American culture,” she gave people the freedom to think about their history in a way they never had before.

Join us to see one of these exclusive previews and learn more about how Black History month is being celebrated in Iowa. Seating is limited at both venues so get your tickets today!
