Not A Genuine Black Man

Saturday, April 6, 2024 5:00 PM - Saturday, May 4, 2024 5:00 PM (PDT)


The Marsh San Francisco marks the 20th anniversary of "Not A Genuine Black Man," with a special limited engagement that will include the 1000th performance of Brian Copeland’s stunning work, which premiered at The Marsh San Francisco in 2004 and went on to become the longest-running solo show in San Francisco theater history. This funny, honest, and harrowing piece by award-winning actor, playwright, and talk show host Brian Copeland recounts the struggles Copeland faced growing up in what was declared one of the most racist suburbs in America. The San Francisco Chronicle described the show as “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.
