  3. Brian Copeland's Not A Genuine Black Man


The Longest Running Solo Show in San Francisco History returns for 4 special performances in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Not A Genuine Black Man, including the 1000th performance on April 20. "In 1972, the National Committee Against Discrimination in Housing called San Leandro, Ca "a racist bastion of white supremacy. It was considered one of the most racist suburbs in America. CBS News and Newsweek covered the story. The US Commission on Civil Rights conducted hearings. And then, we moved to town." In an evening of laughter, tears and sociology, Brian Copeland explores how our surroundings make us who we are. "A beautiful mix of wry humor and heartbreak, indignation and inspiration, a singular story of extreme isolation that speaks to anyone who's ever felt out of place." SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
