NOT A GENUINE BLACK MAN at Malibu Stage Co.
The Longest Running Solo Show in San Francisco History Comes to Malibu for a special limited engagement!
Brian Copeland's first solo show, NOT A GENUINE BLACK MAN, reveals a little-known chapter of Bay Area history. In 1971, San Leandro, Ca. 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.
Come see what all the shouting is about.
âCopelandâs ability to captivate an audience rivals many a celebrated solo predecessor from Ruth Draper to Spalding Gray to Whoopi Goldbergâ¦Copeland is a GENUINE discovery.â
-Los Angeles Times
ââ¦a beautiful mix of wry humor and heartbreak, indignation and inspiration, a singular story of extreme isolation that speaks to anyone whoâs ever felt out of place.â
