What You'll Get
In 1971, Fair Housing advocates considered San Leandro one of the most racist suburbs in America. CBS aired a special on the turbulent situation and the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights even conducted hearings. The very next year, eight-year-old Brian Copeland and his African-American family moved in. With his hilarious and insightful one-man show Not a Genuine Black Man, he'll look back at Bay Area history, and at the ways in which our upbringing makes us who we are. The autobiographical production broke records as the longest-running solo show in San Francisco history and brought Copeland critical acclaim as one of the city's most talented and engaging solo performers. The San Francisco Chronicle called it "a singular story of extreme isolation that speaks to anyone who's ever felt out of place." Now, you can revisit Not a Genuine Black Man's cathartic laughter, tears and sociology at the San Leandro Main Library, as part of The Best of San Francisco Solo Series.
Due to mature language and themes, this production is recommended for ages 15 and up.
