Brian Copeland: Not A Genuine Black Man
The Best of San Francisco Solo Series – Presented by Brian Copeland Presents in partnership with Marin Cultural Association
In 1971, Fair Housing advocates considered San Leandro was named one of the most racist suburbs in America. CBS aired a special in the situation. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights conducted hearings.
The next year, eight-year-old Brian Copeland and his African-American family moved in.
In an evening of laughter, tears and sociology, “Not a Genuine Black Man” is a hilarious and insightful look at Bay Area history, and at the ways in which our upbringings make us who we are.
“Not a Genuine Black Man” 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.
This performance is part of The Best of San Francisco Solo Series presented by Marin Cultural Association and Brian Copeland.
