About this show

Brian Copeland's solo show, Not a Genuine Black Man, reveals a little-known chapter of San Francisco area history. In 1971, San Leandro was named one of the most racist suburbs in America. 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. Bob Balaban directs.
