Christine Morris was born in Columbus, Ohio, and had one brother. She grew up on the east side, but went to a school in the northern part of the city because her parents utilized her grandparent's address in the northern part of the city. She has fond memories of school and the neighborhood. She went on to Ohio University, and met her husband there, who was originally from Alabama. She finished her internship at the Cleveland Clinic. They lived first in the Mt. Pleasant area, and then moved on to Cleveland Heights, where they were the first black family on Lincoln Boulevard. She, unfortunantly, did not have an easy experience. She felt uncomfortable taking her kids out on the street, especially after the bombing of a nearby black family's home in Cleveland Heights.
