The Marsh San Francisco Presents "Not a Genuine Black Man"

SEE EVENT DETAILS
The Marsh San Francisco announces the return of "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. This funny, honest, and harrowing piece recounts the struggles Copeland faced growing up in what was declared one of the most racist suburbs in America. “In the current political climate, empathy seems to be a lost commodity. By showing people the world through the eyes of a bullied and lonely little African-American boy, I hope they will develop compassion for the demonized ‘other,’” says Copeland. The San Francisco Chronicle described the show as “relentlessly introspective and disarmingly honest, Copeland takes apart the false notion that black masculinity is some monolithic concept, in a way that has continued, unfortunately, to be relevant long after the show’s 2004 premiere.” Returning to The Marsh because of the current political climate, "Not a Genuine Black Man" will be simultaneously running in Burbank, CA.
