It's 1822. Great ships are lurching on ocean waves, packed with a terrified mixture of African men, women and children. Their destination? The New World and its gut-wrenching horrors of slavery. Thousands of miles away, the now famed Rosetta Stone has finally given up ancient secrets that had been locked away within its hieroglyphics for almost 20 centuries. The Slave Trade and the Rosetta Stone. What's the connection? 

The mystery that ties these two seemingly unrelated world-changing events together will forever alter the way you view world history. And yet few historians even mention them in the same context. Is this a coincidence or a cover-up? After reviewing the facts in this video, you decide. 

Join Dr. Joel Freeman as, after years of research, he takes you on a spectacular tour of Ancient Egypt. Behold the faces of Akhenaton, Imhotep, Tut, Queen Tiye and many other powerful African leaders. 

Gaze into the eyes of the great Pharaoh, Tarharka (Tirhakah), who during the 25th Egyptian Dynasty used his military might to help Hezekiah, king of Israel, fight the Assyrians. Follow the story line as ancient Biblical seers, Isaiah and Nahum, declare that the Egyptians and Ethiopians were respected and feared due to their unlimited powers. Learn what happened to the royalty of the Black people. 

Come and walk with scholars and skeptics as this gripping video highlights significant accomplishments of African people since the dawn of civilization and exposes racist distortions of those achievements. Finally, join people of all races in the vital process of individual healing, hoping and cross-cultural understanding. 

Dr. Freeman passionately presents this potentially explosive subject in a most reasonable, logical manner, using powerful images and word pictures. You just might be talking about this compelling, consciousness-raising video presentation for years to come!


Comments from Viewers

"When you hear the truth out loud, it really hits home."

"...quite an eye opening experience."

"It held special meaning for me when I saw the facial features on statues upheld as royalty."

"...a moving experience..."

"The knowledge I received this morning was stirring because he (Freeman) related things that have long been accepted as fact and are supported by irrefutable evidence, yet have been muddled up in history."

"I was skeptical when I saw the speaker was white, but as he spoke, the knowledge and documented evidence was so powerful. Dr. Freeman's passion was captivating. All I want to do now is to share this information with as many people as possible."

"This was the best Black History presentation I have ever seen." (EEO director of a government agency)

"The word 'truth-centric' hits the nail on the head."

The Freeman Institute Black History Collection

          The ever-expanding The Freeman Institute Black History Collection has items such as:
  1. Authentic, priceless slave ball, with handle (50 lb.) -- #3 written on it, for "trouble-makers", manufactured late 1600s -- used on the London-based slave ship, Henrietta Marie, the oldest identifiable slave ship wreck in the world (summer, 1700) ; featured in National Geographic's (August, 2002).   By one estimate Henrietta Marie’s cargo grossed well over £3,000 (more than $400,000 today) for the ship’s investors. Most of the captives were headed for sugar plantations where they’d be worked to exhaustion, many dying within five to ten years. Sturdy and fast, The Henrietta Marie traveled the infamous triangular trade route favored by the slavers - from England to the Guinea coast, to the Americas, then home again. Accounts relating to the Henrietta Marie’s voyages were uncovered, as were the names of her investors, captains, and wills of some of her crew members. Artifacts found at the site proved particularly helpful in creating a picture of shipboard life and the practices of the slave trade.
  2. Two Wedgwood jasperware black on white Anti-Slavery medallions, with the bound slave on the front, and the words "Am I Not A Man and A Brother?" around it.  Also, a rare 1800s antique bronze figure of man (6" high, weighs 18 oz.) pictured in medallion.
  3. One-of-a-kind signed letters/albums/contracts/sheet music from Nat King Cole, Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton, Louis Armstrong, B. B. King, Ethel Waters, Pearl Bailey, Miles Davis, Fats Domino, Quincy Jones, Earl Hines, Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis, Jr., Grover Washington, Jr., Count Basie, Mills Brothers, Ozzie Davis, Lena Horne, Four Tops, Cicely Tyson, James Brown, Charlie Pride, Bo Diddley, Bobby Blue and others...
  4. A rare 1838 (third edition) copy of Phillis Wheatley's book, "Memoir and Poems of Phillis Wheatley, A Native African and a Slave" -- Includes memoir, George Washington's letter to Wheatley, preface by John Wheatley, plus poems by another slave, George Moses Horton, with introduction and letters. And also the 1773 edition of the Gentleman's Magazine -- first published mention of Phillis Wheatley's book, first printed in the UK, paid for by the Countess of Huntingdon.
  5. Silver Civil War locket (1860s), containing two tin-type pictures of African American women, worn by an African American soldier.
  6. The Rosetta Stone, a First Edition 55-page article
in Archaeologia: Miscellaneous Tracts Relating to Antiquity, Volume XVI, published by The Society of Antiquaries of London. 1812. Some of the first published articles about the Rosetta Stone. This is historic in light of the fact that the code to Hieroglyphics wasn't cracked until 1822 by Jean Champollion.
  7. Riggs Bank check written and signed on July 3, 1907 by Judson W. Lyons, ex-slave from Georgia and first African-American lawyer to practice in the state of Georgia. He was appointed Register of the US Treasury from 1898-1906 and as such, his signature appeared on US currency issued during those years.
  8. 1820s "T Porter" slave button (from Antigua, British West Indies), used to identify the owner of a slave.
