Brian Copeland's solo show, "Not a Genuine Black Man," reveals a little-known chapter of Bay Area history. In 1971, San Leandro was named one of the most racist suburbs in America. Congressional hearings were held. The next year, the then-8-year-old Copeland and his African American family moved to San Leandro. In a monologue both funny and poignant, Copeland shares his story of identity and diversity in an evening of laughter, tears and sociology, exploring how surroundings make us who we are.
