About This Show

Three performances only! This is a benefit for The Marsh! Not a Genuine Black Man, the longest running solo show in San Francisco history, reveals a little-known chapter of Bay Area history. In 1971, San Leandro was named one of the most racist suburbs in America. Congressional hearings were held. The next year, the then eight-year-old Brian Copeland and his African-American family moved to San Leandro. In a monologue that’s both funny and poignant, Brian explores how surroundings make us who we are. Join the Marsh for an evening of laughter tears and sociology.
