Director Biography - Theo M. Moore II

Theo M. Moore II, Executive Director

Hiztorical Vision Productions was founded by Theo M. Moore II in 2017. Moore graduated from Troy University (main campus) in 2012 with a Bachelors of Science in History. He continued his education on the graduate level and received his Masters in Post-Secondary Education-History in 2015. During his years at Troy University, Moore was involved with many organizations on campus such as: NAACP, Troy University History Club, and Omega Psi Phi fraternity Inc. These organizations ultimately influenced Moore’s focus towards African American history.

Moore initially wanted to become an author with intentions of publishing research inspired from graduate school. However, he was more concerned with how would his work reach audiences of different backgrounds; especially 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 with the intention of getting the attention of viewers from all walks of life.
