Comments from Participants
"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 deserving of its name."
"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. His (Freeman's) passion was captivating..."
"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."
For over 20 centuries, people gazed upon Egyptian hieroglyphics without comprehending their meaning. The Rosetta Stone was found in 1798. In 1822 Frenchman, Jean Champollion, solved this puzzling language. Cracking the hieroglyphic code opened up a whole new understanding of Egyptian people, places and events. Even as the African Slave Trade was expanding from Europe to the Americas, ancient Egyptian secrets were unlocked, causing even greater interest in the magnificent treasures of this land of mystery. But how would the on-going archaeological discoveries define history’s view of the achievements of Black people? Was there an anthropological cover-up?
Using recent scientific evidence from DNA mapping and applications from biblical and historical texts, Freeman also shares some fascinating, easy-to-understand insights regarding the Hebrew / Black connection.
Dr. Freeman passionately presents this potentially explosive subject in a most reasonable, logical manner, using some powerful images and word pictures. This is one compelling, consciousness-raising presentation you just may be talking about for years to come!
One of Return To Glory's (RTG) goals is to promote respect, understanding and cooperation between people of different cultures, races and ethnic groups. While the presentation, "A White Man's Journey Into Black History" is for everyone, this RTG resource is especially designed to encourage the non-black community to open their hearts and minds to receive the truth about the glorious history of people of African descent. Canadian-grown Joel Freeman (co-author of Return To Glory) presents a "truth-centric" overview of ancient African history with a number of contemporary applications.
"Lessons from Blades of Grass in a Concrete Jungle"
A popular presentation:
There are many historical
reasons why people have been and continue to be challenged by the
hardships that accompany racism, prejudice and bigotry. Those hardships
can be likened to the claustrophobic layers of concrete that gradually
seek to nullify all viable options available to an individual under such
But as Russian historian and novelist,
Alexander Solzhenitsyn once remarked, "If the whole
in concrete, a single
blade of grass would sooner or later break through."
Dr. Freeman's Black
Collection is a stunning overview of four centuries, made up of over
3,000 documents and artifacts (oldest dated 1553).
