Chinnitta Morris, also known as “Chocolate” always dreamed of being an entertainer since her childhood growing up in her small town of Gastonia, North Carolina. As a bashful child, she would only perform for her five sisters in their poverty stricken home to make light of bad situations. Chinnitta Morris has always proven herself to be an over-comer and a funny comedian.
She became a college graduate from Winston-Salem State University and also served in the Marine Corps Reserve. Born the third out of six girls raised in a single parent home, and the darkest out of them all, she faced a great deal of criticism from others and had incredibly low self-esteem.
But Chinnitta Morris learned to take her lemons and make lemonade. And through the bitter-sweet of life, she learned to laugh at herself. Her very first time on stage she talked mostly about her complexion-thinking it would be better to deal with the obvious first. She did so well with it , it was actually therapeutic for her. And although she graced the stage her first year under her real name “Chinnitta Morris”, she was mostly remembered for doing jokes about being “chocolate or dark-skinned”, and the name “Chocolate” was given to her officially two weeks before her first taping of Def Comedy Jam.
Chinnitta started her career as a comedian on November, 27 1990 on HBO’S Def Comedy Jam, and has since performed on BET’S Comic View and Bad Girls of Def Comedy Jam, which featured five of the best female comics on Def Comedy Jam. She was nominated for best female stand-up comedian on the “Soul Train Comedy Awards” which was won by Whoopie Goldberg. Chinnitta Morris has also toured with numerous stage plays, including Tyler Perry’s very first play “I Know I’ve Been Changed.”
Although Chocolate was a favorite on Def Comedy Jam and Comic View, and was excelling in the secular arena, in 1998, God called her
in out of darkness into His marvelous light. Her response was a resounding “YES LORD”! Chinnitta Morris had gotten a revelation from God that “only what you do for Christ is going to last”. She realized that everything else was a waste of time and her soul was perishing. It was then that she committed her life to Christ, and she is fully committed.
The transition wasn’t easy, which was no surprise to her. Chocolate faced much criticism from her peers who did not understand her decision at a time when her comedy career was going so well. All that mattered to Chinnitta Morris was that now her life was committed to Christ, and His will became her heart’s desire.
