Untold History's picture

Untold History 

Untold History explores stories, people and artifacts that students won’t learn about in an ordinary text book. Perhaps now more than ever, our history is a vital and very present part of the world around us.

So it’s hugely important that young people feel a part of that conversation and can see themselves reflected in our shared past.

Beautifully made animations and live action videos will inform students about America’s history and how it impacts today’s society – from the Founding Mothers to what marijuana tells us about States’ rights. 

These videos will make history more engaging than ever before. From the first video games to the cotton gin; how do the inventions of the past impact the world around us today?

Hidden Histories shines a light on influential Americans whose stories aren’t that well known, but are most definitely worth learning about – from the “Robin Hood of Harlem” to the greatest athlete of the 20th century.

History isn’t dead and Untold’s videos will make students feel engaged and empowered to start new conversations about their past and question what we think we already know. Not everything worth knowing exists inside the cover of our history textbooks. Untold is here to fill in the gaps and bring new stories to life.
