Ever wondered how Morgan Freeman rose to stardom?
Morgan Freeman, like many early African American actors, was born into a time of racial segregation and prejudice.
Born in Memphis, Tennessee on June 1, 1937, Freeman experienced a rather turbulent childhood.
His parents moved to Chicago when Freeman was still a child, hoping to find better work away from the oppressive hand of the racially-explosive South.
As his father descended into alcoholism, Freeman’s parents separated and Freeman found himself moving frequently, splitting time between living with his grandparents in Mississippi and moving from town to town with his mother.
