His origins were from the Songhai and Tuareg peoples of Niger, according to DNA tests. Slaves who migrated from North Carolina to Mississippi were some of Freeman’s great-great-grandparents. Because the two could not legally marry at the time, Freeman’s Caucasian maternal great-great-grandfather lived with and was buried beside his African-American great-great-grandmother in the segregated South. A DNA test revealed that about a fifth of his African forebears were from the continent.

He lived with his grandmother in Charleston, Mississippi for a while. He had pneumonia as a teenager. 

He took up theatre arts as a major in Los Angeles City College and also had an acting class at Pasadena Playhouse.
