Description

The Marsh San Francisco announces “Not a Genuine Black Man,” the longest running solo show in San Francisco theater history by award winning actor, playwright, and talk show host Brian Copeland, will return to The Marsh. This funny, honest, harrowing piece recounts the struggles Copeland faced growing up in what was declared one of the most racist suburbs in America. In 1972 The National Committee Against Discrimination in Housing called San Leandro a “racist bastion of white supremacy,” becoming the subject of features on CBS News and Newsweek among other national outlets. As the US Commission on Civil Rights conducted hearings, Copeland’s family moved to town – where they faced astonishing and humiliating harassment and isolation.
