Not A Genuine Black Man

Not A Genuine Black Man

  • Opening Date: May 17, 2006  

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.

The show, directed by Bob Balaban, conveys the sense of a man overcoming insuperable odds and emerging whole, sane and triumphant. - NY Daily News
