Our Mission

Hiztorical Vision Productions is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization located in Alabama. HVP partners with local communities throughout Alabama to produce short-film documentaries that help protect and preserve the often-untold African American narratives found in the area. Rather than focusing on stories of victimization, our mission with HVP is to document the success stories of those who were civically engaged or made contributions to this country with the hopes of starting conversations, uplifting generations, and encouraging social advocacy. We help educate, motivate, and inspire people from all walks of life by bringing little known black history to life in the form of uplifting short films for all.

Make A Donation

Fuel a movement to educate, motivate, and inspire local communities with uplifting short-films about the hidden success stories in African American history that happened in many of our own backyards!

All donations are tax deductible and will be used to support the pre-production, production, and post-production expenses related to completing new historical documentaries.
