The American story is diverse. It’s not told from one person’s point of view — or from one part of the country. And those who tell it don’t sound the same or look the same, and they certainly have lived different experiences.

The USA Today Network wants to celebrate that diversity with stories. Their storytelling series, “I Am An American,” is premiering Wednesday in Phoenix at Phoenix Theatre, and it’s also set to show in Nashville and Cincinnati. 

I spoke with Alexus Rhone, a producer with the USA Today Network’s Storytellers Brand Studio ahead of the event.
