A Candid Convo with Morgan Freeman


Candid Candace Chicago, hosted by Candace Jordan on Watch312.com, allows viewers to catch a glimpse of what the city’s ‘who’s who’ are up to.

In this episode, Ms. Jordan attended the Gene Siskel Film Center’s June 7th event – A Candid Conversation with Morgan Freeman – at the Ritz-Carlton Chicago. The event celebrated the actor’s legendary career as an actor and director. Capping the evening was the presentation of the Gene Siskel Film Center Renaissance Award to Mr. Freeman by School of the Art Institute of Chicago President Dr. Walter E. Massey. Proceeds benefited film programming and educational initiatives of the Gene Siskel Film Center, and Ms. Jordan was there to experience it all. Couldn’t attend? No worries…
