In 1971, The National Committee Against Discrimination in Housing called San Leandro, California a ‘racist bastion of white supremacy’. Newsweek magazine came to town. CBS aired a one hour television documentary. The US Commission on Civil Rights conducted a hearing. And then, we moved to town. So begins Brian Copeland’s solo play Not a Genuine Black Man. In this evening of laughter, tears and sociology, Copeland takes us through his upbringing as one of the only African Americans in a town that doesn’t want his family there. It is an exploration of how our surroundings make us who we are that has become the longest running solo show in San Francisco theatrical history.
