Brian Copeland - Not a Genuine Black Man
After a smash run Off Broadway, Brian Copeland brings his hit solo show NOT A GENUINE BLACK MAN home to the Bay Area. The play, which holds the record for the longest running solo show in San Francisco history,returns to The Historic Hoover Theatre in San Jose.
Brian Copeland's first solo show, NOT A GENUINE BLACK MAN, 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.
Come see what all the shouting is about.
