Alexis Kim Hill is an Author, Cultural Literacy Advocate and CEO of Long Story Short Publishing, a mission-driven multimedia company devoted to storytellers seeking to bring their messages for the black community to the masses.
A passionate storyteller herself, Alexis has been writing since she could firmly grip a pencil, putting her vivid imagination to work to bring stories to life. But it was the experience of homeschooling her own little ones that set her on the path of becoming a published author. As she stepped into official curriculum development mode, Alexis searched shelves for culturally rich books that featured black children to use as teaching tools to broach those tough topics such as self-esteem, social injustice, racism and political turmoil in a real, but age-appropriate, way. When she continually came up empty-handed, she decided that the solution was to write her own. And what began as a personal project to write and publish a book with her daughter soon became the vision for her own publishing empire.
Leveraging her years of corporate leadership experience, sought-after entrepreneurial know-how, sports contracts management and well-respected insight into the world of entertainment gained as the Momager to her children who are both actors, Alexis began laying the foundation for Long Story Short Publishing. In January 2019, she released her first book, Mimi and the Black Unicorn, and the company’s debut project.
As the vision caster for her company, Alexis is a content creator who sees media as so much more than words on a page. Be it a book, or a script for the screen or stage, the works produced by Long Story Short will be a lens for the world to view authentic black culture and experiences. They will influence and shape the identities of black children everywhere. And they will uphold the responsibility Alexis has boldly accepted to create a lane for storytellers, of all ages, who would otherwise not been seen or heard—until now.
