The Longest Running Solo Show In San Francisco Theatrical History Comes To Burbank For A Special Limited Engagement!

"In 1971, the National Commitee Against Discrimination in Housing Called San Leandro, California 'a racist bastion of white supremacy.' CBS NEWS and NEWSWEEK covered the story. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights conducted hearings. And then, we moved to town."

 

So begins Brian Copeland's ground breaking autobiographical one man show that shines a light on racism and housing discrimination in the Bay Area after the passage of the Civil Rights Act as well as the struggle of blacks coming of age in that period who are caught between white racists and black dogmatists. Who is "black enough" and who makes that determination?

In an evening of laughter, tears and sociology, Brian explores how our surroundings make us who we are.
