Theo Moore II is a writer, historian, and documentarian living in Alabama. He currently serves as the Founding Executive Director of Hiztorical Vision Productions — where he creates historical short-film documentaries highlighting the untold-but-inspiring history of African Americans in the American South.
Theo’s enthusiasm for the field stems from his childhood. Raised on the west side of Anniston, Alabama, Moore was exposed to many hardships, but he was also exposed to inspiring African American history. Moore would hear stories about the Freedom Riders’ stop in Anniston, the thriving 15th street business district, and Hobson City – the first all-African American governed city in Alabama. These particular stories filled Moore with so much pride and purpose that he decided, at an early age, to contribute to preserving African American history, but also educating others through the art of filmmaking.
