Hiztorical Vision Productions
Hiztorical Vision Productions is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was founded in Auburn, AL in 2017 by historian educator Theo M. Moore II. Theo is passionate about history, particularly African American history that often goes unnoticed. For this reason, he established HVP to preserve local history and educate the masses through uplifting historic documentaries. “I am the type of person that when I learn new information, I want to share it with all who will listen.” - T. Moore, II HVP was born out of Theo’s desire to share uplifting information about African American history that is not always easily accessible or taught to the general public. “The films and projects we usually see of African Americans are from the victimization standpoint rather than a focus on the success stories of those who were civically engaged or made contributions to this country.” - T. Moore, II HVP desires to help local communities take back control of their narratives by working with them to produce historical short-film documentaries about the often-untold success stories of African Americans in their area. HVP also acts as a resource to educators, history lovers, and local organizations who want to provide enrichment material to educate the community, classroom, and nation.

Before the establishment of HVP, Moore initially wanted to become an author with intentions of publishing research from graduate schoolwork. However, he was more concerned with how his work would reach audiences of different backgrounds, especially in low poverty areas. As a former U.S. history teacher in the Alabama School System for several years, Moore realized that technology has an astronomical effect on children and adult learning. As a result, Moore developed the idea to translate his books into short films to educate individuals of all demographics about the untold stories in African American history.
“I am overwhelmed with joy to see my vision manifest into reality. Now that I understand my purpose, I am going to press forward and help preserve our nation's hidden history one project at a time"… Theo M. Moore II.
"African American history inspires me, and I feel that it is important for me to inspire others by sharing our history to equip them with the knowledge necessary to strive for excellence, leave a legacy, and motivate future generations." … Jocelyn Moore
