Return to Glory: The Powerful Stirring of the Black Man


Reaching this generation with high-impact, relevant resources
& educational/inspirational projects that are multicultural,
easy to duplicate, & economically sustainable.




    i.  to help subsidize open-registration, world-class leadership educational and entrepreneurial  workshop experiences for qualifying organizations – regardless of age, race, class or religious affiliation (some events especially designed for urban youth) – who would be unable to afford Dr. Freeman's normal, general market fees for such training. One seminar covers the "people" and "technical" side of the entrepreneurial pursuit.  Seminar titles include: "Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy!"®,  "When Strangling Someone Isn't An Option",  "Diversity: The Value of Mutual Respect",  "If Nobody Loves You, Create The Demand"®, etc.

Five Online Examples: a). Business Schools: 
b). Faith-Based Organizations:
c). Nations:
d) Military Bases:   
e). Corporations:

   ii.  to manufacture and donate already developed resources and also to create new educational and inspirational resources (books, CDs, DVDs, curricula), some of which will be translated into other languages and published in foreign editions. Funds are being raised to donate different resources (CDs, DVDs, books) , including a DVD copy of the Return To Glory® film to prisons, jails, juvenile detention facilities, educational institutions in America, and international mission organizations.  The award-winning film has been translated into French, Portuguese and Spanish.  This translation work will permit the Foundation to donate copies of the DVD across Africa, parts of Europe and South America and the Caribbean.

   The Next Generation workbook (Connecting Now with Later) will connect the contents of the book, "If Nobody Loves you, Create The Demand"® to young adults (15-26) interested in developing an entrepreneurial pursuit.

Examples of Resources: Professional Bloodsuckers, Return To Glory®: The Powerful Stirring of the Black Man, If Nobody Loves You Create The Demand®,
A White Man's Journey Into Black History

   iii.  to develop Black History galleries (see 2,000 sq ft concept below), designed to educate and inspire this generation. The Freeman Institute® owns a Black History collection of over 2500 vintage documents and artifacts, with the oldest piece dated 1553.

   The goal is to develop Black History galleries, connecting the African American experience with galleries in major U.S. cities and in selected cities internationally (parts of Canada, Europe, Africa and South America and every Caribbean country).  Each gallery will have a wall dedicated to some of the White abolitionists who sacrificed their lives for the anti-slavery cause. This project also includes the development and the  manufacture of replicas of the Rosetta Stone to be exhibited in every gallery.

   We'd love for community-based organizations, churches, and/or community colleges to be a part of sponsoring Black History galleries in major cities throughout the USA and parts of Canada. Read more about Dr. Freeman's personal story. (Email for more information.)

    -- Dr. Freeman, the president of The Freeman Institute® Foundation, is creating a digital model and mold and the fabrication of museum-quality replicas.  Why? A full life-size 3-D replica of the Rosetta Stone in each gallery provides a literal touchstone to ancient times and informs that Egypt is located in Africa, not the Middle East. It also provides a solid ancient historical context for the ups and downs of African American history. 

   In other words, we will not reinforce the misguided notion that Black History started with slavery. Black History has its ancient roots firmly planted in creativity, inventiveness, ingenuity, royalty, perseverance and so much more, with many African Kingdoms (Ghanian, Songehay, Great Zimbabwe, Malian, etc.) -- providing a context for the documents and artifacts exhibiting the part African Americans played in the past four centuries of American history.

     -- What will it take for a local organization to start a Black History gallery? For starters, find a corporation or local foundation to grant about $50K (for the framing of documents, remodeling costs, etc.) and also to locate about 2,000 - 3,000 square feet to get a gallery going in their community. We have developed an autoCAD design demonstrating how the square footage can look. The corporation funding the local effort can become the title sponsor of the gallery in their community. The economic viability of the gallery concept has already been completed. Each gallery can become a local "town well," where young people are mentored, families break the curse of debt, entrepreneurial dreams are fostered and lives are transformed.

   iv.  to anonymously donate small amount of funds, after careful review, to any individual or organization that has demonstrated the thoughtful use of financial assistance. The funds may be given to anyone for charitable reasons, at the discretion of the directors. Funds are not given to those who are actively soliciting for funds, because then the gift would no longer be anonymous.  The anonymity of the foundation and its directors will always be retained.

  Purpose: Each gift is designed to encourage people by providing real-world financial assistance, with all acknowledgements going back to our Creator.

  v.  to encourage (through "The Entrepreneurial Connection")  every school (Jr. High, Sr. High, College and University), church, community-based organization, prison, mentoring group, Job Corps site and community-based organization to develop an entrepreneur club. The goal is to inspire our next generation to dream big, research the marketplace and then to implement their viable business plans.

   Dr. Freeman has developed the book/workbook combination designed to connect the contents of his book to specific audiences. The book/workbook combination  will give the necessary tools for organizations to start an entrepreneur club or to enhance an already existing entrepreneur club.

TEC is sponsored by The Freeman Institute Foundation

 Project: "The Entrepreneurial Connection" is also the name of the radio program  available FREE of charge for any radio station in the world -- College, Internet, non-profit, commercial radio stations   --  The program is professionally-produced 5-minute installments (72 in all) of Dr. Freeman's book, If Nobody Loves You, Create The Demand --  --  Workbooks are being developed as resources for Next Generation Entrepreneur Clubs --

   Dr. Freeman and Producer/Director Steve Alston traveled to West Africa to collaborate on a 2nd project tentatively titled African Kings: A Journey Into the Past, Present and Future of African Kingdoms.  Freeman and Alston were given unprecedented access to many African kings. The recorded interviews with these kings that can only be seen in this upcoming documentary. This film will combine tribal dances and stunning photography while addressing the past, present and future perspectives of the African Kingdoms. This project serves as a sister project to the "Return to Glory" documentary.

   In October 2004 Dr. Freeman was a keynote speaker for the Association of International Schools of Africa (AISA). Three conferences were held in Botswana, Kenya and Senegal to make it easier for member and affiliate school faculty/administrators/staff to attend. Because of generous donations to The Freeman Institute Foundation, Freeman was able to donate a copy of the DVD film to every international school library in Africa. He returned to speak at the same conference in 2007.

   The award-winning Return To Glory film project has been completed. The video and DVD versions of the film are available. RTG Distribution serves as distributor. There are a number of other regional and international distributors also interested in non-exclusive distribution rights. We are open to your creative distribution ideas.
