    Charles W. Swan, actor, director, doctor, knighted, IMDB His acting, singing and music debut can be traced back to his childhood in 1952 at Fannie L. Bourbar Elementary School and Pennsylvannia AME Zion Church in Baltimore, Maryland. His class under the direction of Mr. Arnett Brown (teacher) had the class present the life and history of John Henry the Steel Driving Man in the puppet show. The class spent several weeks preparing for this stage show. Charles played the part of the preacher man. "The Review was a smashing say the least". Charles continued to act in school plays and blew his trumpet in the school marching band and orchestra in Booker T. Washington Junior High School and Baltimore City College. The famous saxophonist Gary Barts rose from these ranks. Charles had a little trio that played out of the Music Union Hall on Howard Street in B-More
