History on Video

Some of the titles available from History on Video


Morehouse College graduate, Rex Barnett, has produced one of the largest documentary catalogs in the nation featuring Black achievers. "We have to own our own media companies that produce programs about us," said Mr. Barnett. "I started History On Video to show the positive side of Black people. For me, this has been a labor of love."

Mr. Barnett's publishing company now has 62 documentaries available covering education, entertainment and sports. Legendary educator Benjamin Mays, mentor of Martin Luther King, Jr., is profiled. Nationally televised on Black Entertainment Television, the Mays program stars President Jimmy Carter.

Other programs include Dr. Charles Drew, founder of the Blood Bank; Dr. Daniel Hale Williams, the first to successfully perform surgery on the human heart, and civil rights legend Fannie Lou Hamer. The Charles Drew program has received favorable national reviews from Booklist, School Library Journal and the National Medical Association. The Daniel Hale Williams documentary has earned favorable national reviews in Science Books and Films. Mr. Barnett is writer, producer, and director.

"Knowledge of our history is what we need for pride and to empower ourselves," said Mr. Barnett.

Among the influential people endorsing Mr. Barnett's programs are: President Carter, Chuck D, MC Lyte and Hank Aaron. Other profiles feature Mary McLeod Bethune, Paul Robeson, Richard Wright, Ben Carson, The Last Poets, Chuck D and MC Lyte. There are 62 programs in the series.
