In 1971, The National Committee Against Discrimination in Housing called San Leandro, California a ‘racist bastion of white supremacy’. Newsweek magazine came to town. CBS aired a one hour television documentary. The US Commission on Civil Rights conducted a hearing. And then, we moved to town. So begins Brian Copeland’s solo play Not a Genuine Black Man. In this evening of laughter, tears and sociology, Copeland takes us through his upbringing as one of the only African Americans in a town that doesn’t want his family there. It is an exploration of how our surroundings make us who we are.
