Early life and education Morgan Freeman
Morgan Freeman
was born on June 1, 1937 in Memphis, Tennessee. He is the son of Mayme Edna (née Revere; 1912–2000), a teacher,[5] and Morgan Porterfield Freeman,[2] a barber who died on April 27, 1961, from cirrhosis. He has three older siblings. According to a DNA analysis, some of his ancestors were from Niger.[6] Freeman was sent as an infant to his paternal grandmother in Charleston, Mississippi.[7][8][9] He moved frequently during his childhood, living in Greenwood, Mississippi; Gary, Indiana; and finally Chicago, Illinois.[9] When Freeman was 16 years old, he almost died of pneumonia.[10] Freeman made his acting debut at age nine, playing the lead role in a school play. He then attended Broad Street High School, a building which serves today as Threadgill Elementary School, in Greenwood, Mississippi.[11] At age 12, he won a statewide drama competition, and while still at Broad Street High School, he performed in a radio show based in Nashville, Tennessee. In 1955, he graduated from Broad Street, but turned down a partial drama scholarship from Jackson State University, opting instead to enlist in the United States Air Force[12] and served as an Automatic Tracking Radar Repairman, rising to the rank of Airman 1st Class.[13] Freeman's service portrait appears in his character's funeral scene in The Bucket List.[citation needed] After four years in the military, he moved to Los Angeles, California, where he took acting lessons at the Pasadena Playhouse

City College.[12] During this period, Freeman also lived in New York City, working as a dancer at the 1964 World's Fair, and in San Francisco, where he was a member of the Opera Ring musical theater group. He acted in a touring company version of The Royal Hunt of the Sun, and also appeared as an extra in the 1965 film The Pawnbroker. Freeman made his off-Broadway debut in 1967, opposite Viveca Lindfors

in The Nigger Lovers[14] (about the Freedom Riders during the American Civil Rights Movement), before debuting on Broadway in 1968's all-black version of Hello, Dolly! which also starred Pearl Bailey

Acting career Although his first credited film appearance was in 1971's Who Says I Can't Ride a Rainbow?, Freeman first became known in the American media through roles on the soap opera Another World and the PBS kids' show The Electric Company[9] (notably as Easy Reader, Mel Mounds the DJ, and Vincent the Vegetable Vampire[clip]). Joan Ganz Cooney
Joan Ganz Cooney
claims that Freeman regrets doing The Electric Company and that "it was a very unhappy period in his life."[15] Freeman himself admitted in an interview that he never thinks about his tenure with the show at all, though he also admits he was happy to be a part of it.[16] Since then, Freeman has considered his Street Smart (1987) character Fast Black, rather than any of the characters he played in The Electric Company, to be his breakthrough role.[16][17] Beginning in the mid-1980s, Freeman began playing prominent supporting roles in many feature films, earning him a reputation for depicting wise, fatherly characters.[9] As he gained fame, he went on to bigger roles in films such as the chauffeur Hoke in Driving Miss Daisy, and Sergeant Major Rawlins in Glory (both in 1989).[9] In 1994, he portrayed Red, the redeemed convict in the acclaimed The Shawshank Redemption. In the same year he was a member of the jury at the 44th Berlin International Film Festival.[18]

From his early life, Freeman has two extramarital children; one of them is Alfonso Freeman.[29] Freeman was married to Jeanette Adair Bradshaw from October 22, 1967, until November 18, 1979.[30] He married Myrna Colley-Lee on June 16, 1984.[30] The couple separated in December 2007.[31] Freeman's attorney and business partner Bill Luckett announced in August 2008 that Freeman and his wife were in divorce proceedings.[32] On September 15, 2010, their divorce was finalized in Mississippi.[31] Freeman and Colley-Lee adopted Freeman's stepgranddaughter from his first marriage, E'dena Hines, and raised her together.[33] On August 16, 2015, 33-year-old Hines was murdered in New York City.[34] In 2008, the TV series African American Lives

2 revealed that some of Freeman's great-great-grandparents were slaves who migrated from North Carolina to Mississippi. Freeman discovered that his Caucasian maternal great-great-grandfather had lived with, and was buried beside, Freeman's African-American great-great-grandmother (in the segregated South, the two could not marry legally at the time).[5] A DNA

test on the series stated that he is descended in part from the Songhai and Tuareg peoples of Niger.[6] Religious views In a 2012 interview with TheWrap, Freeman was asked if he considered himself atheist or agnostic. He replied, "It's a hard question because as I said at the start, I think we invented God. So if I believe in God, and I do, it's because I think I'm God."[35] Freeman later said that his experience working on The Story of God
God
with Morgan Freeman did not change his views on religion.[36] Properties Freeman lives in Charleston, Mississippi, and New York City. He owns and operates Ground Zero, a blues club in Clarksdale, Mississippi. He formerly co-owned Madidi, a fine dining restaurant, also in Clarksdale.[37] Flying At age 65, Freeman earned a private pilot's license.[38] He owns or has owned at least three private aircraft, including a Cessna Citation 501 jet and a Cessna 414
Cessna 414
twin-engine prop. In 2007, he purchased an Emivest SJ30[39] long-range private jet and took delivery in December 2009.[40] He is certified to fly all of them.[41] Car accident Freeman was injured in an automobile accident near Ruleville, Mississippi, on the night of August 3, 2008. The vehicle in which he was traveling, a 1997 Nissan Maxima, left the highway and flipped over several times. He and a female passenger, Demaris Meyer, were rescued from the vehicle using the "Jaws of Life". Freeman was taken via medical helicopter to The Regional Medical Center (The Med) hospital in Memphis.[42][43] Police ruled out alcohol as a factor in the crash.[44] Freeman was coherent following the crash, as he joked with a photographer about taking his picture at the scene.[45] His left shoulder, arm, and elbow were broken in the crash, and he had surgery on August 5, 2008. Doctors operated for four hours to repair nerve damage in his shoulder and arm.[46] On CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight
Piers Morgan Tonight
he stated that he is left handed but cannot move the fingers of his left hand. He wears a compression glove to protect against blood pooling due to non-movement. His publicist announced he was expected to make a full recovery.[47] Meyer, his passenger, sued him for negligence, claiming that he was drinking the night of the accident. Subsequently, the suit was settled.[48] Beekeeping After becoming concerned with the decline of honeybees, Freeman decided to turn his 124-acre ranch into a sanctuary for them in July 2014, starting with 26 bee hives.[49] Activism Charitable work In 2004, Freeman and others formed the Grenada

on the island of Grenada. The fund has since become PLANIT NOW, an organization that seeks to provide preparedness resources for people living in areas afflicted by hurricanes and severe storms.[50] Freeman has worked on narrating small clips for global organizations, such as One Earth,[51] whose goals include raising awareness of environmental issues. He has narrated the clip "Why Are We Here," which can be viewed on One Earth's website. Freeman has donated money to the Mississippi Horse Park in Starkville, Mississippi. The park is part of Mississippi State University and Freeman has several horses that he takes there.[52] Politics Freeman endorsed Barack Obama's candidacy for the 2008 presidential election, although he stated that he would not join Obama's campaign.[53] He narrated for The Hall of Presidents

Black history is American history."[59] He says the only way to end racism is to stop talking about it, and he notes that there is no "white history month."[59] Freeman once said in an interview with 60 Minutes's Mike Wallace, "I am going to stop calling you a white man and I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man."[59][60] Freeman supported the defeated proposal to change the Mississippi state flag, which contains the Confederate battle flag.[61][62] Freeman sparked controversy in 2011 when, on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, he accused the Tea Party movement of racism.[63][64][65] In reaction to the death of Freddie Gray and the 2015 Baltimore protests, Freeman said he was "absolutely" supportive of the protesters. "That unrest [in Baltimore] has nothing to do with terrorism at all, except the terrorism we suffer from the police. [...] Because of the technology—everybody has a smartphone—now we can see what the police are doing. We can show the world, Look, this is what happened in that situation. So why are so many people dying in police custody? And why are they all black? And why are all the police killing them white? What is that? The police have always said, 'I feared for my safety.' Well, now we know. OK. You feared for your safety while a guy was running away from you, right?"[66] Filmography Main article: Morgan Freeman
