Joel A. Freeman, Ph.D.

Founder of the Rosetta Stone Traveling Exhibit Project & President of the Foundation
  • Rosetta Stone aficionado, who has actually traveled to the west bank of the Nile where the Rosetta Stone was found. 
  • BACKGROUND: His interest in the Rosetta Stone was launched in his late teens. As he read about ancient Egypt, his fascination with the history and culture of that region grew. But then he realized that the cracking of the code to the hieroglyphic inscriptions on the Rosetta Stone was the key to unlocking the secrets of ancient Egypt, along with becoming the catalyst for launching the soft science of archaeology. That's when he began to hyper focus on the historical drama surrounding this ancient artifact.
  • He has created 8 different models of the Rosetta Stone, along with owning a substantial Rosetta Stone Collection.
  • Founder, CEO & Chief Mischief Maker of The Freeman Institute®.
  • Edutainment speaker w/travels to 55+ countries.
  • Owns a comprehensive Black History collection with well over 3,000 genuine documents and artifacts (oldest dated 1551).
  • Cofounder & coauthor of Black History 365 curriculum.
  • Off-key singer & extremely bad dancer.
  • Resides in Maryland and South Carolina with his wife, Shirley.



Corporations spend millions of dollars for a 30-second ad during the Super Bowl. Weeks later, hardly anyone can remember even one ad shown on TV during the last Super Bowl.

I am personally inviting corporations, foundations and individuals to be significant early adopters of this rather unique edutainment project.

My promise is that our dedicated team will continue to work hard to make the marketing/branding benefits well worth your while over a sustained 7 years…and beyond.
