Charles Upshaw

Charles Upshaw is a good looking black man in a wheelchair who is frequently confused with Denzel Washington. He is a semi-retired psychologist who just can’t seem to quit for good. He was born in Georgia, raised in Oklahoma and Colorado, but has lived in Mid-Michigan for 45 years, which makes this home. Charles attended a small Baptist liberal arts school in Kansas and came to MSU for graduate school. He is a late comer to The Moth, having been introduced to the radio show by a work colleague. Although he has enjoyed telling stories for years, his first Moth story was eight months ago. He is married with two adult children.
